The Menomonie Public library shared some exciting news through two recent media releases.
LET’S READ! Supporting Young Readers in Dunn County
The Menomonie Public Library received a $6,000 grant for Supporting Early Literacy and Reluctant Readers by Leveraging Technology in the Collection from The Community Foundation of Dunn County.
The library will use the money to purchase WonderBooks (print books with audio built into the cover) and playaways (audiobooks) for youth. Stop in and check them out!
$1,000 BECOMES $3,000
The Menomonie Public Library received a $1,000 gift to be used to get the word out to the community about all the library has to offer. The anonymous giver requested that together, the Friends of the Menomonie Public Library and the Menomonie Public Library Foundation, match the gift. The two groups decided to go above and beyond that request and each matched the gift with $1,000, for a total donation of $3,000!
Since public funding does not cover all of the library’s costs, the library is extremely
grateful for generous grants such as this from our community so it can continue to make a positive impact in the lives of people in Dunn County.
If you are interested in donating a gift of any amount, please contact Joleen Sterk,
Menomonie Public Library Director.
