DOUGLAS BYRD MIDDLE SCHOOL NAMED AS A 2017 RECIPIENT OF A LIBRARY GRANT

FROM THE LAURA BUSH FOUNDATION FOR AMERICA’S LIBRARIES

 Today, Douglas Byrd Middle School received a $5,600 grant from The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries.  More than $930,000 in grants will be distributed to 160 school libraries across the country this year for the purchase of books and reading materials. Douglas Byrd Middle was one of only eight schools in North Carolina chosen to receive this grant.

“As a former librarian, I know school libraries play an important role in improving student achievement and encouraging students to love reading.” said Mrs. Laura Bush. “With this grant, your librarian will make your library the perfect place for students to fall in love with reading.”

The librarian at DBMS, Kristy Sartain, is in her first year with Cumberland County Schools and her fourth year as a school librarian. “This year, I was able to really open up the library to students and have increased circulation over last year by more than 300%. I am lucky to have a principal, Mrs. Meshonda Williams, who is very supportive of the library and allows me to use some out-of-the-box ways to get students in here. This grant will allow me to purchase the books students are asking for, like graphic novels, mysteries, romance novels, and biographies of their favorite actors, artists, and athletes. I am a firm believer that every child can be a reader. They just need to find the right book that sparks it for them.”  Read more
