The Libri Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization that donates new, quality children’s book to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its BOOKS FOR CHILDREN program.  The foundation supports the concept that children who learn to enjoy reading at an early age continue to read throughout their lives. 

 The Libri Foundation, by matching funds raised by local sponsors, enables a library to obtain children’s books it could not otherwise acquire due to budgetary constraints.  The Foundation matched, at a 2-to-1 ratio, the funds donated by the Ann Hoskinson Memorial Fund. 

 The Ann Hoskinson Kunkle Memorial Fund is a special fund to be used to benefit the New Florence Community Library.  Ms. Kunkle was a native of our area and taught school in Japan for over 15 years.  This fund is a tribute to her memory by her former students.

 The New Florence Community Library received 67 books with a retail value of $1054.
