The Library would like to extend a big Thank You to everyone who donated money for the purchase of new children’s books for the Broadwater Public Library, as well as the Starr Diner and the Broadwater Country store which helped by putting these jars on their counters. Over $230 was raised for this purpose, and purchase a total of 54 books!
One of these books is a brand new copy of a 2015 release of a Dr. Seuss book that was recently found by its publisher, What Pet Should I Get? Dr. Seuss’ books are best enjoyed when read aloud, so we are having a storytime to read this book on Friday, September 4th at 4:30 p.m. Children, their parents, and anyone who remembers how they enjoyed Dr. Seuss as children is welcome to attend.
We have many other children books, for all age groups from toddlers through teens.
By request of the children, we have gotten 7 new arithmetic books. The children found that materials designed to teach basic math skills were deficient in the Library’s collection.
