LCM CISD receives over $156K in grants to restore libraries after Harvey

Little Cypress and Mauriceville Elementary Schools are both recipients of $135,000 grants from the Laura Bush Foundation to help restore the schools’ libraries that were decimated during Hurricane Harvey, LCM CISD announced Jan. 15.

In addition to the Laura Bush grant, Little Cypress Elementary received a $1,500 grant from International Paper and a $20,000 grant from the American Library Association.

"This will go a long way in getting the libraries ready for children when their schools reopen," LCM CISD spokesperson Sherry Combs said. "Not only were books lost, but equipment, furnishings and shelving must all be replaced."
