  • Two local libraries are benefiting from Secretary of State Jesse White’s Another Back to Books grants.
    Carrier Mills-Stonefort Public Library is receiving $5,000 and Galatia Public District Library is receiving $2,200, according to a release from White’s office.
    The grants are to fund the purchase of fiction books, non-fiction books, learning CDs and DVDs and other educational materials.
    “It is important that our libraries have access to a diverse collection of books for patrons to read for knowledge or enjoyment,” White said, in a prepared release. “These grants are a great way for libraries to encourage reading and get more people to use their local library.”
    Awards are funded by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services and Illinois State Library.
