Libri Foundation Books for Children Grant
Once again the library is the recipient of a Libri Foundation Books for Children Grant. The Libri Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization that donates new, quality children's books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its BOOKS FOR CHILDREN program. With matching funds from the Florence S. Mahoney Foundation, the library received 82 new books with a retail value of $1,406.55 with an additional $350.00 worth of Math and Science books. The books are currently on display in the community room of the library, with the exception of those checked out by the Stanley School children on their monthly visit to the library. For more information on the Libri Foundation visit www.librifoundation.org.
Game night
Our first game night of the winter will be held Thursday night, January 15 at the library. For the remainder of the season game night will be held the second Friday of the month. Board games and electronic games will both be offered. All ages are welcome to attend.
