JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — A $5,000 grant from the Michigan International Speedway has helped improve a Jackson elementary school’s once dormant library.
Our media partners at MLive and The Jackson Citizen Patriot report that the Frost Elementary School library previously was used for faculty meetings and storage. But now the library has been further developed into a makerspace featuring Legos, K’Nex, a bead bracelet station and other creative activities.
The revamp also focuses on technology, with the school digitizing books into a computer system and purchasing tablets, gaming systems and a flat screen TV.
Frost Elementary was one of six schools selected to receive an MIS Cares grant.
