We received 61 new books with a value of over $1,000 which represents books for preschool through teen years containing a variety of information on the alphabet, animals, biographies, and just stories to read for the fun of it. The summer reading program focuses on native vegetables and there’s also a correspondence via Skype with a sister library in Gadsden to discuss both of our programs.
Summer Reading Program participants have already made contact with the Alabama library. They have introduced themselves, talked about foods and other subjects. Our young people made tortillas and started a compost bin.
The Book Cart in the portal of the library is always full and changing with new books donated by visitors and friends. Every book you purchase helps fund our library’s programming.
