Five rural school districts and their regional service centers have successfully acquired a $20,074 federal grant to buy and install an updated library system.

In the first year of the Southcentral Collaboration for Integrated Library Literacy Systems (SCILLS) program, 10 schools in the North Sanpete, Piute, Garfield, Kane and Beaver districts will gain access to a new, Web-based, reliable, integrated library system, called Koha.

The federal grant funding is provided under the Library Services Technology Act of 1996, established to help modernize libraries across the nation and to improve library services to the underserved. The competitive grant program is administered by the states.
