Wisconsin’s K-12 public school libraries will receive $32.1 million, thanks to earnings from the state’s Common School Fund. That was the word today from the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands.
School librarians use the funds to provide myriad learning opportunities for students,” said Kim Bannigan, president of the Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association. “It might be books, but it might also be technology. For many WEMTA members and public school libraries, the Common School Fund is the sole source of funding, so a chance to connect with those who make it possible is an essential part of our conference.”
