Libraries – Supporting Virtual Escapes Since Before the PandemicSubmitted by Headwater Investment Consulting on July 22nd, 2020
By CB Mason
The McMinnville Library Foundation supports many programs run by our library. With schools being closed since March 16th, Yamhill County families have the added stress of distance learning from home. Add in canceled summer travel plans, and the need to escape through stories make their summer Book Buddies Bookmobile program is even more crucial this year.
The enrichment program provides bags with age-appropriate books, a fun toy (like bubble wands, airplane gliders, and slime), and materials for a STEAM project (including pot and seeds, science project booklets, and craft materials) and brings the bookmobile to under-resourced neighborhoods.
Consider supporting the Book Buddies Bookmobile program with the money you are not spending on canceled summer travel and events. Every $10 donated supports one summer reader.
Checks payable to “The Library Foundation of McMinnville” can be mailed to 225 N Adams Street, McMinnville, OR 97128. Online donations are accepted through the Yamhill County Cultural Coalition.
