Library Director, Janet Danilow, and Assistant Librarians, Vickie Lechuga and Meaghan Seller, are excited about the new additions to the Kearny Library. The books on the table are part of 67 books the Libri Foundation Grant provided.

Kearny – Kearny Public Library has recently received two Book Grants. The Libri Foundation Grant provided over $1,000 worth of books received by the library, for a donation of $350, which was provided by the Friends of the Kearny Library; thanks, in main part, to donation from the community.

The Kids Need to Read Book Grant provided 12 cases of books. In addition, there are several hundred more books that the Kearny Library is free to use in whatever way seems best.

“As a result we now have books for our Library collection itself, plus enough doubles that we can use as prizes in our gift bags for the Summer reading Program which begins May 29 and runs for five weeks.” says a library representative. They continued, “We wish to thank the Friends of the Library and those who support the Kearny Library for enabling us to get these grants.”

In other Library news, National Library Week runs from April 14 – 17. During this time, the Kearny Library will hold their annual poster contest for grades 1 – 6. The kids will draw posters that represent the theme “Libraries are the Heart of Every Community”. The top three winners out of each grade then receives a gift bag with prizes and a book which the Kids Need to Read Book Grant has also provided for.
