Library Grant

The Livingston County Library is the place to turn to for books concerning health.

The library was awarded a $6,000 Missouri State Library targeted collection development grant, allowing the library to purchase more books on diseases, exercise, mental health and diet. Robin Westphal, of the Livingston County Library, says they applied for the grant, stating much of the library's health material was outdated and inadequate. She also says up-to-date reading material on health is important to have in today's libraries. In addition to health materials, the grant allowed the library to buy award-nominated titles in the children's and teen area. Though not all of the titles are in yet, patrons will be able to spot the new books in the health and medical section because of their large orange sticker on the spine.
