Coming August 2019: DCHS Reading Nook and
In May, our library received incredible news! We had been awarded a Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant! The grant was used to add a beautiful Reading Nook, perfect for perusing a potential great book. In addition, a renovation project turned our old circulation desk into something bright, shiny, and new. You MUST come in and see the facelift. What a blessing to have such a lovely place to "shop" for a great read!
Another recent blessing came in the form of a grant from the Wiregrass RC&D Council! Through this act of generosity, we have been able to purchase 67 non-fiction titles addressing everything from causes of the Korean War to tatoo removal. We were also able to purchase a few graphic novels and several high-interest novels for those of you who want a great page-turner but don't want to read 500 pages.
We are so grateful to Wiregrass RC&D for these fantastic new books! Come by and take a look at these titles. You may find just the thing to interest you!
