This grant project was supported in part by Library Services and Technology (LSTA) funds awarded to the Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
This collection development grant will allow us to focus funds on children’s materials from birth to age 8 as they move from pre-literacy skills to beginning readers. Funds will be used to buy board books, picture books, and readers as well as additional shelving and seating for the children’s area.
Many of the books available follow a reading scale that will help you as a parent find the perfect material for your child. Take a look at some of the wonderful books below that are available at GPL thanks to the IMLS funding.
