New Books from Summer Reading Heroes!

These are but a few of the new books donated to support this year’s Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story. These picture book biographies were carefully selected by library staff, then willing patrons signed up to provide us with the book of their choice. Thanks to the generosity of these “Summer Reading Heroes”, we now have more beautifully illustrated biographies of famous people like Jane Goodall, Amelia Earhart, Malala Yousafzai, Robert Frost, Clara Lemlich, Rachel Carson, Henri Matisse, and others. These books portray the subjects, not just as adults, but also as young children so readers are able to see the early traits and characteristics that helped to make each person an important contributor to our culture or our society.
Each of these wonderful books carries a special bookplate in the front that names the donor. On behalf of the Gordon-Nash Library and the children who visit it, we thank the following patrons for their thoughtful donations:

Linda & Mike Dowal
Michelle DuBreuil
