Hurricane-Ravaged Schools Getting Money

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former First Lady Laura Bush has announced $1
million in grants for school libraries damaged by hurricanes in
Alabama and other Gulf Coast states.

She says the money will help libraries at 24 schools from Texas
and Louisiana to Mississippi and Alabama. The bulk of the money
goes to schools in Louisiana.

The money is being handed out through the Laura Bush Foundation
and its Gulf Coast School Library Recovery Initiative. Since the
devastating Gulf Coast hurricanes of 2005, the initiative has
raised about $5.7 million for school libraries.

Bush made her announcement Friday at the John McDonogh high
school in New Orleans.
