Polk County Public Library recently received a gift of 100 new children 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.
The accompanying photograph shows young library patrons getting their first look at the new books. Pictured are Philena Rath with her mom, Jamie; Jacob and Hannah Thacker; and Robbilee Rath.
The library is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please stop in to explore and enjoy our new collection.
