Some local students will get the chance to improve their reading skills, thanks to a federal grant.

Tulsa Public Schools superintendent Dr David Sawyer accepted the $180,000 check Monday. The money will go to help several Tulsa schools improve their library media and address the literacy and reading challenges of their students.

Lori Rich with the Oklahoma Department of Education: "These library grants go to support No Child Left Behind which as you know, kids reading and math on the grade level."

The grant will be distributed among 11 Tulsa schools.
