The Pueblo de Abiquiu Library has many exciting ideas for the 2011 year. We will be having a Read-a-thon event on March 13th, participating in the El Dia de los Libros/Ninos event in April, and the 2011 Summer Reading Program. We also have available for in-library use the Hooked on Phonics learning tools, and we are offering our youth an opportunity to learn to provide computer/technical support by having “A Career Development Opportunity” day here at the library.
Volunteers are working at making a book club, our library has a new membership to RIF (Reading Is Fundamental), and we are also working hard on applying for grants, such as The Libri Foundation. The Libri Foundation awards quality children’s books to rural public libraries and has graciously reached out to us for 2011-2012.
There is a 701-title booklist with bookplates that we invite you to come in to our library’s circulation desk to review in order to help us make the selections! We will need to raise $350 and the foundation will match that at a 2-to-1 ratio. We will then be able to select $1,050 worth of books which is approximately 70 books!
Please come over to the library and sign up as a reader and/or artist for our March 13th Read-a-thon, and/or sponsor a reader/artist for just $50.
