Clute Library Awarded Texas Book Festival Enhancement Grant - Buys Books to focus on Parenting and Children
The Clute Library has been chosen as a 2017 Texas Book Festival Collection Enhancement Grant recipient to enhance its collection and to encourage reading in the community. The grant was specifically used to add a parenting collection and more board books in the children’s area to partner with the Family Place Library Grant that was awarded late 2016.
The grant establishes a starter collection for the parenting materials and covers everything from developmental milestones, potty training and even nutrition. Located in the Family Place Center, it will be readily available for all parents of young children to browse books without having to leave their child alone in the play area. In addition, their usage data will help guide future purchases.
All of the books have arrived, and they are being shelved in the Family Place Center at the children’s area. Suggestions for future purchases are appreciated.
The Clute Library is located at 215 North Shanks St, Clute, Texas. For more information, contact the Clute Library at 979-265-4582.
