Sen. Libous, Morrisville State Colllege partner to award Guernsey Memorial $1,000 in funding through BOOKS program

NORWICH – The Books Open Opportunities for Kids to Succeed (BOOKS) program, a collaboration of Senator Tom Libous and Morrisville State College, has awarded $1,000 to the Guernsey Memorial Library to fund summer and yearlong programs.



BOOKS Director Tia Zink stated, “The library may have the greatest collection of books in the world, but if kids don’t see it as a fun and inviting place, we aren’t going to get them through the doors. In addition to the programming grants we also provide grants to the libraries to purchase new children’s books. Since the average children’s book only stays in print five to seven years, it is important that the newest books be available in order to maintain a child’s interest.”
