We are pleased to announce the December Book of the Month Program selections!
Each year, MVSB donates funds to allow local libraries to purchase and promote new books. The MVSB Book of the Month program seeks to foster the joy of reading and learning for people of all ages.
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. December 2013 Book of the Month selections are:
