Dear Editor:

The trustees and staff of the Ruth Hughes Memorial District Library would like to express their thanks to Four County Community Foundation for its recent grant of $3,500.

We are looking forward to using the grant to purchase Spanish language and bilingual Spanish/English books and toys for our youth collections.

We are hoping these purchases will create a more welcoming atmosphere for our Spanish-speaking patrons, encourage more Hispanic patrons to visit the library, and enable multi-generational reading and playing experiences between Spanish speaking grandparents and their grandchildren.

We greatly appreciate Four County Community Foundation’s support of the library, and are very grateful for their generous grant.

Tracy Aldrich
Library Director
