This is just a sampling of the 100 new children’s books ranging from pre-kindergarten through early readers that our library has just received. 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. We are busy getting these books on the shelves so come into the library today to explore and enjoy our new collection. Our sincerest gratitude to Diane Brownstone and the Brownstone Book Fund for their generous gift.
The Avoca Free Library provides a quiet welcoming place to read and work. It is a gathering place for citizens from all parts of the community. Libraries are more than just shelves of books and rows of computers. They are places where citizens gather to investigate, interact, and imagine. They are community centers that are accessible to every member of society. Through support and resources any community could leverage the strengths of its public library to accomplish and task or challenge with which they are met.
