JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas State University Museum has received a grant of just more than $90,000 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Museum director Marti Allen says the $90,013 grant will support three years of membership in the Arkansas Discovery Network. The network is a coalition of six Arkansas museums that develops and shares children's hands-on exhibits.

Network membership for the three years starting in 2015 allows the museum to continue offering learning experiences designed for children in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade.
