MCPL Receives Spotlight on Literacy Grant


The Montgomery City Public Library is proud to announce that it received a $4,917.00 Spotlight on Literacy Grant from @USIMLS.  This Spotlight on Literacy Grant will focus on health literacy for seniors.  This funding will be used to create Memories Matter kits, which will help senior citizens, especially those with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia, keep their minds sharp.  The kits will include books, discussion and photo cards, puzzles, and other items to promote cognitive and communication skills. 


Gaylee Harris, MCPL library director, commented, “The Memories Matter kits are in response to patron requests for resources for senior citizens.  We are very happy to receive this Spotlight on Literacy grant to provide funding for twenty-one themed kits, which will be available for patron checkout and used in library programming.  Some of the themes include the four seasons, the 1950s, animals, travel, the great outdoors, and patriotism to name a few.  The Memories Matter kits are another wonderful addition to the Montgomery City Public Library!” 


This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
