Sierra Madreâ€™s Public Library was the recipient of a one-time grant of $7,500 from the state library and was able to purchase over 400 new, print books. New books include childrenâ€™s, teens, popular fiction, classics, non-fiction and reference materials.
All new books are part of collections with high demand and high circulation. Library Director Carolyn Thomas said, â€œWe made a real effort to acquire new versions of classics and we refreshed popular books with immaculate new copies. We also bought many Newbery and other award-winning childrenâ€™s books as well as some reference books we would not have been able to afford otherwise.â€
Stop by the library and see the impressive display of the new books. Grant funding is Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) funds, allocated from the California State Library.
