The Kinsman Free Public Library has just received a gift of 100 new children's books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through early readers. These books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City, interested in fostering early reading, a love of books and encouraging parents and children to read together.
"It is the vision of the Kinsman Free Public Library to serve as our community's hub for engaging people, enriching lives and enlightening minds," says Library Director, Kimberly Garrett. "We believe that learning begins at birth and never stops," says Garrett. "We are committed to engaging with children and families to cultivate and nurture a life-long love of reading and learning by offering quality programs and services such as Storytimes, Music and Movement classes, a Tail Waggin’ Tutors program where children can read to a therapy dog, and special family programs throughout the year.”
The Kinsman Free Public Library is an independent library serving the Joseph Badger School District and surrounding areas, boasting a diverse, well-maintained collection of over 67,000 materials on-site in addition to the thousands of titles available through e-media services. “We are incredibly grateful to receive this gift from the Brownstone Book Fund,” Garrett continues. “This generous donation is a wonderful, welcomed addition to our multifarious collection of children's books aimed at providing children with enriching experiences that allow them to learn, grow, imagine and create.”
Visitors are invited to come to the library and explore and enjoy the new titles.
