MOFFAT – The Moffat School District Library is pleased to announce it has received for the fifth year, a grant in the amount of $3,500.00 from the Colorado State Library through the State Grants to Libraries Act. Funds will be used to support and purchase materials the school would otherwise be unable to afford, including books, periodicals, Ebooks & Audiobooks, and books for story time collections.
The State Grants to Libraries was funded by the Colorado legislature to help increase access to early literacy and education materials. This non-competitive program administered by the Colorado State Library funded a combined total of 316 public libraries, academic libraries, and school and district libraries this 2017-2018 fiscal year.
Moffat School District is an extraordinary small, rural district in the San Luis Valley that is committed to meeting the needs of all students and families. The district is committed to providing a high quality education that prepares students for college, work and citizenship. The Moffat School librarian and art teacher Patte Reeves-Smith applied for this grant to continue to ensure that the Moffat School library has the most engaging resources that are needed to serve Moffat’s students, families and staff.
