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.
“As First Lady, I visited schools and libraries across our country where I noticed that many school libraries had empty shelves, and their collections and reference books were terribly out of date.”
