Project Overview

The LeSueur Public Library purchased 60 standard Minnesota history books to be distributed to the 9 libraries in their system. These books were immediately put on display and into circulation. A brochure was created for each library branch that listed all the titles purchased with the grant. A Facebook posting further announced the availability of the newly purchased books.
