“The committee is thrilled about the Bookapalooza materials finding their way into the hands of children who need reading materials,” Nancy Baumann, ALSC grant administration committee chairwoman, stated in a media release. 

Other ALSC grant winners were the Talahi Community School in St. Cloud, Minn., and North Shelby Library children's department in Birmingham, Ala.

"The kids are going to flip," Petruzzi said. "It's going to be really a blessing. I'm so excited. It's probably going to take me three weeks to get all those books entered into our system."
