Brownstone Book Fund

The Richmond Public Library has received a gift of 100 new children’s books.These books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund , a private foundation in New York City. We are now in the process of cataloging all our new children’s books. Thanks to the Brownstone Book Fund!

The Brownstone Book Fund is interested in fostering early reading, a love of books and encouraging parents and children to read together.

Here are a couple pictures of some of the books we received.

The Library has been busy in December.

The kids have made Christmas presents to give a family member. We did not post pictures so everyone will be surprised.

The kids also made Reese’s Reindeer and Candy cane reindeer.

The story time kids have lots of cute crafts too.

The adults have kinda slacked this month. We have had a lot of people with some health problems. We started our flower pot candles, maybe we will them finished before the new year.

The library will be closed Monday, December 25th for Christmas day and Monday, January 1st for New Year’s Day
