$1,000 grant to help purchase new books and materials.

Students at the will be getting some new books in after the Mineola school recently won a $1,000 Collection Development Grant from Mackin Education Resources for use to help fund the purchase of books and materials for the school’s library.

School librarian Judy Shaughnessy was entered into a contest for the grant by visiting the company’s booth at the recent American Association for School Librarians National Conference in Minneapolis.

The award monies were used to purchase a total of 55 curriculum-related books that are aligned with the new Common Core Standards. Only three educators across the United States were selected for this grant.
