Libri Grant

Written By: mstdonnel - May• 22•14

Libri signAs recipients of the Libri Books for Children Grant, we were able to add $1,401.47 worth of children’s books to our collection. The Libri Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization that donates new, quality books to small, rural libraries through it’s Books for Children program. The foundation, by matching funds raised by our Library foundation, enables the library to purchase books it could not ordinarily acquire to do to budget constraints. The Library foundation contributed $350.00, which the Libri Foundation matches at a 2-1 ratio.

Thanks to a generous donation the Libri Foundation received from Bill Strawbridge and Meg Wallhagen, our library received a bonus of $350.00 worth of math and science books.

These books can be identified by special book plates placed on the front page of each book.

The books are on display in the children’s area of the library. We look forward to showing them to you.
