References in periodicals archive ?
A competitive grant awards program that is now in its fourth cycle, ILTSL provides targeted 1-year grants to school libraries in districts where at least 20% of the students come from families whose annual income falls below the poverty line.
Schools spent most of their ILTSL grant funds (68%) on new print resources, on purchasing new hardware (11%), and on extending after-school library hours by adding staff (11%).
The ILTSL program grant provides only 1 year of funding to a small number of schools.
