New Year's Day
Day after Thanksgiving
The Streator Public Library would like to thank the children who participated in the "Streator Area Home Educators" group for succeeding in their reading challenge and donating 46 new children's books to the library! We look forward to having them on the shelves soon.
The picture and post (see below) were provide by the group.
"Children from Streator Area Home Educators participated in a Reach for the Stars reading incentive challenge in January. They each read 300 minutes over the course of two weeks and collected pledges for doing so. With the money that was raised, we were able to purchase Usborne and Kane Miller books for area libraries, including the Streator Public Library. We would like to thank our library director, Cynthia Maxwell, for coming out to our meeting on Monday evening to receive the 46 books that we were able to donate to the Streator Public Library. Thank you!"
Renovation Project Contribution Request
The library is currently making plans to restore the children's department. This historic room is in need of new shelves that are children friendly. The shelves are too high for children to access all the material. In the best interest of all the children of Streator, who visit the library, we would like the department to be accessible to everyone.
The approximate cost for the replace all the free standing shelving will be $18,000. At this time we are accepting donations to help us achieve our goal of reviving this wonderful room. The room will become a child friendly space where every child can browse the shelves for the new books we are currently adding to the collection.
Help us update this room so that the children visiting the library can enjoy the entire collection. Every donation will make a difference, every donation will count toward reaching our goal. We would like to have this project completed by June of 2015.
