The Maxwell Library received 77 new children's books through a generous grant from the Libri Foundation and a matching amount from the Friends of the Library. Maxwell Librarian Sharron Johanson is thrilled to recieve the new books. "The children's books in the library have not been updated in over ten years. These beautiful new books are a welcome addition to our children's collection."
There are books for all ages from babies to teenagers. Some of the books are bilingual English-Spanish, and there are also several Spanish language books available. Both fiction and non-fiction titles are included in the collection.
Some of the new non-fiction titles include: Cool Stuff and How it Works, George Washington's Teeth, Dinosaurs:The Most Complete Up-to-Date Encyclopedia for Dinosaur Lovers of All Ages, Redwoods and Fire Engines Up Close.
The Libri Foundation was established in 1989 for the sole purpose of helping rural libraries acquire new, quality, hardcover children's books they could not otherwise afford to buy. Since October 1990, the Foundation has donated over $4,600,000 worth of new children's books to more than 3,000 libraries in 49 states.
