Sinclairville Free Library Adds 79 New Juvenile, Children’s Books
SINCLAIRVILLE — The Sinclairville Free Library has added 79 new hardcover children’s picture books and juvenile fiction and nonfiction books from a Children’s Book Project Grant from The Pilcrow Foundation.
An additional 19 new juvenile math and science books were donated by Hal Berenson and Laura Ackerman of Colorado in conjunction with the Pilcrow Foundation grant. The grant, which is given on a two-to-one matching basis, supplies small rural libraries with new hardcover children’s books. The library’s contribution of $400 was raised by a Read-a-thon. The Pilcrow Foundation’s two-to-one matching grant enabled the library to select $1,200 worth of books from the foundation’s booklist.
The Pilcrow Foundation offers this grant to small rural libraries in the country that would not otherwise be able to acquire these books because of limited budgets. The foundation relies heavily on individual donations. All contributions to the Pilcrow Foundation are tax-deductible. For information on donating to the foundation, write to The Pilcrow Foundation, 343 E. Washington Avenue, Cottage Grove, Oregon 97424.
In addition to the foundation, Berenson and Ackerman, library read-a-thon participants and donors helped raise money for the purchase.

Prizes are awarded throughout the program, and “Take and Make” themed craft kits are available at the library.
