100 new children's books

Gift to public library from Brownstone Book Fund

The Bluffton Public Library has received a gift of 100 new children’s books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through early readers, according to Jessica Hermiller, library director. 

These books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City, interested in fostering early reading, a love of books, and encouraging parents and children to read together.

“We are thankful for the generous gift from the Brownstone Book Fund - this support will enable the library to inspire, empower, and support children, families and the community.” said Hermiller.

The library was chosen on recommendation of the State Librarian of Ohio.  The gift allowed the library to choose 100 children’s books from a variety of authors and in different formats for every young reader.

“We are delighted with the new additions to our picture book collection. It was a pleasure to be able to pick 100 magical books to share with our youngest patrons. Dr. Seuss put it best, ‘You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.’” shared Esther Birkey, Youth Services Coordinator.


The Brownstone Book Fund books can be found on display in the youth services department.  Please visit the library and enjoy our newest additions to the collection.
