Jerry Zucker Middle School is one of four schools in South Carolina that was awarded a $5000 grant from the Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries. 

On June 5th, the Foundation announced that 212 school libraries throughout the United States were awarded a total of $1,060,000 in grants.

Since 2002, the Laura Bush Foundation has awarded more than $10.5 million to schools throughout the United States and its territories.  The mission of the Laura Bush Foundation for America's libraries is "to support the education of our nation's children by providing funds to update, extend and diversify the book and print collections of America's school libraries." 

According to Jerry Zucker Middle School Jacob Perlmutter, "One of our primary goals is to encourage and foster a love of reading in our students, and the Laura Bush Foundation grant will help us provide our students with more high interest titles that they want to read.  Receiving this grant is a real accomplishment for our school and a fitting way to end the school year."
