Lois Lenski Covey Bookmobile Grant!

The AHJ Regional Library Bookmobile was recently awarded The Lois Lenski Covey Bookmobile grant from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. The Bookmobile will have many new books for children thanks to this grant. This quote is from the Lois Lensky Covey website: https://www.loislenskicovey.org/....

"The purposes of The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation are to advance literacy and foster a love of reading among underserved and at-risk children and youth. Lois Lenski, celebrated author and illustrator of over one hundred children's books and the 1946 Newbery medalist for Strawberry Girl, established the Foundation as a charitable institute in 1967. Since then the Foundation has assisted over 400 organizations in their efforts to nurture reading skills, gain access to books, and instill a love of reading. Lois Lenski had a life-long concern that all children have access to good books. Toward that end, the Foundation provides grants to bookmobile programs that serve children from disadvantaged populations."
