True Cross Catholic School, 400 FM 517 E. in Dickinson, is getting a grant from The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries, but the foundation has not disclosed the amount.

The foundation’s 2017 Disaster Relief Initiative is awarding grants to 15 school libraries damaged during Hurricane Harvey. The grants range from $1,500 to $70,000, the foundation said.

School officials were not available for comment Thursday afternoon.
