New Kid Books Have Arrived

Help us kick-off our after-school story time and attend our Kid Book Party on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at 4:15 PM.

One hundred and forty new children’s books have arrived thanks to the generosity of the Palisade Community and grants.

Special thanks to the organizations, The Pilcrow Foundation and Save the Children, who helped make this celebration possible.

The Pilcrow Foundation is a non-profit committed to providing new, quality, hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the United States. Learn more about this tremendous organization here.

Save the Children is a humanitarian aid organization that believes every child deserves the opportunity to learn. With their generous donation, our summer reading program was fully funded.

Join us Wednesday to preview these inspiring titles.
