Mrs. Bush Praised for Helping Libraries
"Schools are essential to the recovery that is under way," Mrs. Bush told guests at a dinner sponsored by the Community Foundation, a public charity. "Until schools are rebuilt, families can't come home."
The first lady said it takes $50,000 to rebuild an elementary school library and $100,000 to restock a high school library. Last week, she visited New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School and the Holy Cross School for Boys in New Orleans to announce grants.
