School Libraries Get $32 Million from Common School Fund

According to DPI's Channel Weekly (5/20/10), on April 26 the Common School Fund (CSF) paid out $32 million to public school districts for the purchase of books, media materials and computer equipment for school libraries. DPI reports that the library aid payments are $25.85 per student for children between the ages of 4 and 20 living in each school district.

For many school districts facing tight budgets, the CSF payments are the main or only source of revenue for the purchase of these library materials. For more information about the CSF, go to
