Grant provides 67 new kids’ books to Pember Library

T he Pember Library received 67 new books for toddlers through high school in July. The books were awarded to the library through the Libri Foundation of Eugene, Ore., “Books for Children Grant.” The grant is a matching funds grant in which the library can receive up to $1,050 worth of books provided they raise one-third of the cost outside of the library’s regular budget process.

The Friends of the Pember Library gave the $350 needed to receive the full amount of the grant. The Friends raise funds through their annual book sale.

The new books include both fiction and nonfiction. Historical and scientific topics are covered in the nonfiction. The fiction consists of picture books for little ones, early reader books, and juvenile and young adult fiction. There should be something for everyone. The books are processed and ready for checkout and will be on display at the library for the rest of the month. They will then be shelved with the rest of the children and youth collections.

The Libri Foundation, which awards the grant, was established in 1989 with the sole purpose of helping rural libraries acquire new, quality, hardcover books for children and young people. Since October 1990, the foundation has donated over $3.5 million worth of new books to more than 2,600 libraries in 49 states.
