The King Public Library recently received a $4,000 grant from the Dorothy Louise Kyler Foundation, a private grant-making foundation located in Holland, Ohio. The Foundation awards grants to select libraries to help fund children’s collection development.
This is wonderful news for the library, and all of it's young readers!!
The books, audiobooks, and dvds are starting to arrive!
Come in and see the wonderful material that this grant has allowed us to purchase.
