Reading is Grand! Celebrating Grand-Families Telling Our Stories at Your Library Grant
The Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) has awarded Forsyth County Public Library a Reading is Grand! Celebrating Grand-Families Telling Our Stories at Your Library grant for 2013. The program is a celebration of the important role grandparents play in the lives of children. It is through their infinite wisdom and experience that children learn the unique cultural and familial values that help them grow into valuable contributors to the community.
Forsyth County Public Library, along with the other three winning libraries, were selected based on the level of creativity and originality in meeting the program criteria, their action plan, level of involvement of grandparents in the activities and impact of the program in the community.
