Leach Public Library Receives Rural Libraries Grant
On November 22, Irasburg children were treated to storytelling from Duncan McDougall and brand-new books through a Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) Rural Libraries grant awarded to Leach Public Library.
Mr. McDougall led interactive presentations at Irasburg Village School. Colette Houle, the librarian at Leach library, and Nora Zettler, librarian at the school, introduced children to new books both the school and public libraries received through the CLiF grant.
The grant allowed the Leach library to select $2,000 worth of new books for the library’s children’s collection, as well as $500 worth of new books for the school library’s collection. This allows libraries to update their collections and expand nonfiction and fiction options for their young patrons.
“Receiving these new books for our town library is so exciting,” Colette Houle, librarian at Leach library, said. “I can’t wait for the children to come in and see the wonderful selection we were given. I, myself, plan on reading some of them.”
