I saw this on LM_Net and thought perhaps some would be interested.
"In an effort that mirrors his $1 million in donations to independent bookstores<http://www.shelf-awareness.com/ct/uz6571758Biz24439062> last year, author James Patterson, a major supporter of reading, books and literacy, is giving $1.25 million to school libraries this year. Donations will range from $1,000 to $10,000 per school and can be used for all types of purposes, including, for example, repairs to a computer system or a school project focused on books and reading. (Anyone can nominate a school library; applications are here<http://www.shelf-awareness.com/ct/uz6571758Biz24439063>.) The grants will be awarded on a rolling basis throughout the year, beginning with $250,000. While schools don't need to report on how the money is used or their results, Patterson hopes teachers and students will share their experiences in their communities."
