The children’s collection has just grown by 100, thanks to a very generous gift. The gift of 100 new children’s books, ranging from pre-Kindergarten through early readers, were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City. Diane Brownstone, director of the foundation, became addicted to books at an early age. She often visited the public library. As an adult, she set up the foundation with the goal of fostering early reading and a love of books in other young people. She hopes the new books will encourage parents and children to read together.
The Deposit Free Library was one of a hundred libraries chosen to receive this gift. The collection includes classics such as Make Way for Ducklings, Horton Hears a Who, and Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, as well as current favorites like Fancy Nancy, Giraffes Can’t Dance, and Knuffle Bunny. There is something for everyone in this group of books. Come to the library and enjoy our new collection. And a huge THANK YOU to the Brownstone Book Fund for this extraordinary gift!
Join us in welcoming the newest member of the Deposit Free Library family! Deborah Stever has recently joined the library staff.

She brings teaching, writing, and organizational skills, as well as lots of enthusiasm to our library. We are thrilled to have her join us! Stop by the library sometime soon to welcome Deb and to check out some of our newest materials.
Santa is taking time from his busy schedule to make a visit to the Deposit Free Library. On Friday, December 16th at 6:30, the jolly old elf will stop by to read Christmas stories. All children and their parents are invited to join us for this annual event. Take some time out from the hectic pace of the holidays to enjoy a quiet time with your kids. If you’d like, wear your pajamas and get a photo to preserve an old-fashioned holiday memory. Merry Christmas from the library!
