Library receives grant for purchase of new books

The library received a grant for $6,304 from the Missouri State Library for the purchase of materials to enhance the library's collection.

Grant funds will be used to enhance the collection in four areas: non-fiction, graphic novels, urban fiction, and juvenile audiobooks.

Look for special displays throughout the library for newly-added materials as they arrive.
