Placeholder Image
MADISON - Public school districts throughout the state will share $30.2 million in library aid, which will be paid Monday, April 28 from the Common School Fund, the only state funding specifically designated for the purchase of materials for school libraries. Aid is based on the number of children between the ages of 4 and 20 living in each school district. This year's school library aid payment will be $24.95 (rounded) per child for 1,210,433 children counted in the 2012-13 school census.
