"It All Starts With Libraries"
It all starts with libraries. The Library Foundation, Inc is excited to unveil its focus of support for the past three years: the LITtle Discovery Center, the newest and seventh location for our Manatee County Library System. Children ages two to five years have a safe learning place where they can enjoy various activities related to literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking at the newly opened LITtle Discovery Center. The center offers six little themed areas with games, toys, and books. In addition, parents can receive guidance from a teacher or children’s librarian on how to make the best use of resources available at the Center. This is Manatee Libraries' latest effort to provide help and commitment to assist our children in achieving early learning and grade level reading results. Our MCPLS offers these services at no charge to any child and their families.
Your Library Foundation exists to provide financial support to the Manatee County Library System. We fund programs and supplies that are not otherwise covered by tax revenue, including this latest location dedicated to early literacy.
We need your help to continue to support these projects, programs and materials. Your tax-deductible donation is critical to continue the momentum. Perhaps, you want to make the donation in the name of a friend or family member as a holiday gift for the person who has everything. Donations can be made in several ways – check, cash or online. Information can be found at: https://www.manateelibraryfoundation.org/donate
Thank you for your consideration in a donation to The Library Foundation, Inc.
Wishing you a Happy Holiday season and the best in the New Year.
