Comedian Mitch Hedberg once said, “Every book is a children’s book if a kid can read.” With help from a grant to acquire new books, Moran children’s choices are growing.
“Books are very expensive when you order them straight from a distributor,” Librarian Connie McWhirter said. “Getting an opportunity that allows us to get these new books is wonderful.”
The money comes from the Libri Foundation. The organization is located in Eugene, Ore. and is dedicated to the single issue of providing rural libraries with new books. Libraries are eligible for money from the foundation once every three years. This is the second time Moran Public Library has received funds.
