We the People Bookshelf awarded to Huntington Public Library

The Huntington Public Library is pleased to announce that the Library is a recipient of the “We the People” Bookshelf grant that includes free hardcover editions of 17 children’s classics. The grants, presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association, are provided to support the teaching, study and understanding of American history and culture in our library. Each year, the National Endowment for the Humanities identifies a theme to build the “We the People” Bookshelf. This year the theme for the bookshelf is “Picturing America”. In 2009, 4,000 school and public libraries in all 50 U.S. states were selected from a pool of more than 7,000 applicants to receive “We the People” Bookshelf grants.

The books will be available at the library for patrons to check out and read. For suggestions for programming or more information about library programs visit or telephone the Library. Telephone: 413/667/3506.
