New Children's Books

Reardan Memorial Library has received new books, thanks to a grant from the Libri Foundation’s Books for Children program. The Libri Foundation matched a check from the Friends of the Reardan Library at a 2-to-1 ratio. This enabled $350 from the Friends group to provide 80 new books. The 80 books included an additional $350 worth of science and math books which were donated by Bill Strawbridge and Meg Wallhagen.

The books vary from wordless books, picture books, and early readers to fiction and non-fiction books for elementary students, and some Young Adult choices. “This grant updates our children’s collection and provides award winning books for our patrons,” said Suzanne Schulz, librarian. “The science and math books were a surprise; they were an addition to the books that I requested. I’m really excited to be able to provide these new items to the children.”

Miss Mina has been reading some of the picture books during the Tuesday afternoon preschool reading time.
