Welcome to the Piedmont Public Library
Piedmont Library Awarded Children's Books from the Libri Foundation
The Piedmont Public Library has been awarded a BOOKS FOR CHILDREN grant, providing the Library with $1,050.00 worth of new, hardcover children’s books from the Foundation’s booklist of over 600 titles. In addition to the selections from the booklist the Library also received 20 math and science books, generously donated by Bill Strawbridge and Meg Wallhagen and the Libri Foundation. The books received are fiction and nonfiction books aimed at all readers between preschool and high school age.
The Libri Foundation was established in 1989 in Eugene, Oregon for the sole purpose of giving quality books to small rural libraries across the United States. For more information about the Libri Foundation, visit their website at www.librifoundation.org
The new books have been catalogued in the computer, and you’ll find many of these books on display at the Library. Come in and check them out!
