The National Education Association Read Across America and the National Education Association Foundation congratulates educators and schools who will receive $1,000 awards to purchase diverse books for their school libraries. The 2016 NEA’s Books Across America Library Books Awards are made possible by a contribution by The Weinstein Company and Walden Media in connection to their recent film The Giver, based on the popular young adult novel by Lois Lowry.

Congratulation to Teacher Mark Kubisch for applying for and winning this wonderful award of $1000 for Sycamore Elementary Schools library. School Librarian Dana Drollinger, can’t wait to start purchasing new library reading books!
