The county treasurer shall, with the approval of the county board, have authority to retain the money to be allocated under this subdivision to Class I, II, and III school districts of the county to be used for the establishment and support of a county circulating library for Class I, II, and III school districts. A school district which has failed to sustain a school taught by a legally qualified teacher for the length of time required by law shall not be entitled to receive any portion of the Forest Reserve Fund.
