The U.S. Department of Education announces awards for *Innovative
Approaches to Literacy*, $28 million in 46 two-year grants to local school
districts to be used for school libraries as well as other non-profit
organizations that work for childhood literacy. *IAL* is a program of
redirected money that was championed by Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and others
in the FY 2012 appropriations bill, half of which must go to school
libraries in low-income districts.
