Librarian Genea Reynolds has announced that Lyndon Carnegie Library is the recipient of a gift of 100 new children’s books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through early readers. The books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City that fosters early reading and a love of books, and encourages parents and children to read together.

“Come to the library to explore and enjoy our new collection,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds said the library and patrons are also celebrating its newly updated children’s area. The library received memorials from Hotch Hanna’s and Janis Mickelson’s families that were used to purchase carpet squares to put over the concrete floor, an expandable children’s table, and rolling shelves to display books and toys. She said patron Levi Garber donated his time to install the flooring.

“We are so blessed to have awesome patrons who love the library as much as we do,” Reynolds said.

To check out the new collection, stop by the library at 127 E. Sixth St., Lyndon, or for more information, call 785-828-4520 or see
