What We Do
The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries provides funds to our Nation’s neediest schools so that they can extend, update, and diversify the book and print collections in their libraries with the goal of encouraging students to develop a love of reading and learning.
Rebuilding Libraries Affected by Hurricanes Harvey and IrmaDonate Today
After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries awarded grants of $10,000 to $75,000 to school libraries whose collections were damaged or destroyed in the hurricanes. This year, after the devastation we have seen from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we are again going to dedicate our resources to hurricane-affected schools to rebuild their book collections.
Applying for Our Grant
School libraries affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are invited to apply for Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries grants. Applications will open shortly.
