EFFINGHAM, IL-(Effingham Radio)-The Effingham Public Library is pleased to announce it has been selected to receive a Back to Books Grant for $3,000 to purchase popular children titles.
The “Building Confident Readers” book collection of over 400 new books will be available for check out beginning June 1, 2018, during “Reading Takes You Everwhere” Blast Off Summer Reading Event.
To make room for all these new children’s books, the library will be refreshing its children’s collection and reallocating some children’s books through the Book Bike.
Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
