Libri Grant 1-2011

Libri Grant Awarded January 2011

We have received word that we have been pre-approved for a Libri Grant to buy quality children's books.  We have received this grant previously in August 2007 and on the basis of our follow-up report, we were pre-approved for this round of grants.


The Libri Foundation supports the concept that children who learn to enjoy reading at an early age continue to read throughout their lives.  In order to develop a love of reading, children must have access to books which stretch their imaginations, touch their emotions, expand their horizons.


The Libri Foundation will match local funds 2 to 1, providing over $1000 worth of books.  We will be selecting books from the list soon and should receive the new books in the spring, just in time for Summer Reading!
