Homebound Library Service
We are pleased to announce
that we are offering a homebound
delivery service within the
city limits of Kanawha including
residents of the care center.
Please call the library if you or
someone you know would like us to bring
the library to them: 641-762-3595.
The Kanawha Public Library has received an Aureon Charity
Grant in the amount of $1000 to furnish supplies for the Maker Space area. Upon
reviewing an abundance of applications, the Aureon Charity Grant Committee
delegated funds to projects committed to the betterment of local Iowa
communities. Aureon, formerly Iowa Network Services, believes in rewarding
various organizations for their passion and dedication to advancing their own
neighborhoods. The grant was presented in conjunction with Communications 1 who
sponsored the grant application.
The Kanawha Public Library is seeking to encourage
interaction between patrons of all ages as they make and create their own
projects. Some older patrons are
interested in sharing their skills in lost arts such as knitting and crocheting
with younger generations. Activities like coloring have been shown to be
therapeutic and relaxing. In the Maker Space area, patrons of all ages can
enjoy spending time together doing what they love.
The library also wishes to encourage more socialization and
interpersonal skills among the children and young adults coming to the library.
Having board games and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) kits
available would help promote development of good social skills and higher
thinking strategy skills.
Matching funds were granted by the inFaith Community
Foundation and made possible through the generosity and recommendation of the
Communications 1 Network Charitable Fund.
