Iuka Public Library receives Libri Foundation grant for Children’s Books

Libri booksLibri books 2

Iuka’s youngest patrons are now enjoying the bounty of new books given to the library through a grant awarded by the Libri Foundation.  This gift was made possible with funds raised by the Friends of Iuka Library and included an unexpected bonus:  $350 of additional math and science books from Libri Foundation patrons Bill Strawbridge and Meg Wallhagen.  In early February, the Iuka Librarian interrupted patrons in the library with an actual squeal of delight when two cases of new children’s books arrived!  Most of the new treasures are now back from being cataloged into the Northeast Regional Library System and can be viewed in a special display area around the Children’s section.  You can check out the details, a copy of the annual report, and more information online at
