Well-loved books need replacing
The library is seeking donors to “adopt” authors of easy readers and well-loved picture books to replace old, tattered but perennially popular books about characters such as Arthur, Amelia Bedelia and Babar. Books by authors such as James Marshall, Katharine Holabird, and Cynthia Rylant are among those needing replacement copies.
Contributions of $50 or $100 will help purchase much needed replacement copies. An anonymous donor has given $1,500 to the library to purchase 150 new replacement books, but more are needed.
