Library grant to focus on children’s books

BELFAST – The Belfast Free Library has been awarded a $500 Heron Fund gift from the Maine Community Foundation for the purchase of children’s books.

The gift seeks to ensure that children in Waldo County have access to the best children’s literature available. The choice of books will be at the discretion of the children’s librarian.

“I believe that it is important to have a strong library whose resources can be shared by all of our citizens, young and old,” said the anonymous donor to the Heron Fund, which supports projects and organizations that help residents of Waldo County.
