For the past few years we have received grants for children’s books. We have gradually run out of room on the shelves for all of the new books, even though we have weeded our collection on a constant basis. It has become very difficult to shelve the books, as they are squeezed in so tightly, and the children cannot browse the shelves because they are so tight on the shelves.
With this grant from RC&D we have been able to purchase three shelves, which are double faced (books on both sides), as well as three cabinets for children’s materials such puzzles, board games, arts and crafts, and toddler toys. This has expanded the area of our children’s library and made it easier for everyone to access the books.
