From the Association of Illinois School Library Educators:
The Illinois School Library Media Association or ISLMA (now known as The Association of Illinois School Library Educators or AISLE) has established the Library Book Selection Service (LBSS) Endowment Fund after accepting the LBSS assets.
Trustees of the LBSS Endowment Fund have set up grant opportunities for both public and private schools as well as public libraries participating in at least one of the Illinois Readers' Choice Award programs - the Monarch, Bluestem, Rebecca Caudill, or Abraham Lincoln Award. Those libraries interested may apply for a complete set of titles in one appropriate level.
