Library gets new books for home-school students

Written by 

The Haywood County Public Library has received an $18,500 grant to be used for a home-school outreach collection. These federal funds are investments that help libraries deliver relevant and up-to-date services for their communities. The home-school collection will contain audio and print materials for children from kindergarten through high school targeting the home-school community and will be housed in the Pennsylvania Ave. branch in Canton.

“Receiving this federal funding for materials will enrich the lives of children in our home-school community,” said Library Director Sharon Woodrow. “These children and their parents depend on the public library system to provide a large percentage of their reading materials.”

Library Director Sharon Woodrow said that a small amount of the collection will be available in the next few weeks and will expand as funding allows. 828.356.2504 or 828.648.2924.
