Banner Bank and the Dayton Friends give CCRLD funds to replace worn children's books.

Posted by amy in Announcements

Some of our most loved children's books are looking a little rough around the edges. Many need to be replaced. The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library have generously agreed to contribute $500 to help offset the cost of replacing them. The Friends have asked Banner Bank to contribute to the project and they have awarded $200 to help replace some of our well-loved and worn children's books. 

The Columbia County Rural Library District would like to thank Banner Bank and the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library for their generous contributions!
