Humboldt County Library Receives Grants for New Materials
This is a press release from the Humboldt County Library:
The Humboldt County Library recently received two grants from the California State Library to purchase new materials.
The first, the Rural Libraries Initiative grant, allowed the library to purchase almost 300 titles, with adult books on subjects pertaining to veterans and people over 50 years of age, and young adult and children’s books about mental health, early literacy, and diversity.
The second, the Rural Libraries AV Collection Development grant, a partnership with Midwest tapes, awarded the library $3000 dollars, doubling this year’s DVD and Blu-Ray budget.
The grant allowed the library to add nearly 150 adult and children’s DVDs and Blu-Ray discs to their system-wide collection of approximately 29,000 audiovisual materials.
In addition to a print book collection, the library has a large number of audiovisual material, including DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, CDs, and book on CDs, along with a vast e-material collection on Overdrive’s Libby app. Audiovisual checkouts are included with library card privileges, and, as always, are free to borrow.
To explore the library’s collection, or to place a hold, please visit the library’s website at www.humlib.org.
