We are pleased to announce the August selections for the MVSB Book of the Month Program at seven local libraries.
The MVSB Book of the Month program seeks to foster the joy of reading and lifelong learning for people of all ages. MVSB donates funds to allow local libraries to purchase and promote books for adults and children.
Participating libraries each receive an annual $500 donation to purchase two or more books each month to be displayed on their shelves as the MVSB Books of the Month. MVSB also supplies colorful displays designed to attract library patrons to these monthly selections. August 2013 Book of the Month selections are:
