The Libri Foundation Books For Children

In February of 2014 the library received a grant from The Libri Foundation. This foundation is a nationwide organization which donates new, quality hardcover children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its Books For Children program. If your library is awarded a Books for Children grant The Libri Foundation matches any amount of money raised by local sponsor’s from $200 to $350 on a 2-to-1 ratio. This grant can only be applied for every three years. Our library received a total of 81 books with a total retail value of $1,408.40. A Sum of $350.00 of that was through donations to the library made by the citizens of the community. Another $350.00 of that total was thanks to another donation made to the foundation for our library to receive math and science books. Please check out the children’s page for a complete list of the books received by this wonderful program.101_3331
