Secretary of State Jason Kander announced Thursday that local libraries will receive funds through a Summer Library Program Grant.  Cape Girardeau Public Library received 11-thousand-673 dollars, and Sikeston Public Library 7-thousand-440 dollars.  The grant will be used to implement summer reading programs and library services to a wide range of patrons with an emphasis on building relationships and increasing participation; enhancing early childhood learning experiences through traditional and digital story times, educational programs and partnerships with early childhood groups; and engaging patrons in new library experiences by providing access to interactive learning, research and expression with iPads.
