Kiwanis Golden K supports Library Project

The Kiwanis Golden K of Cloquet has donated $250 toward an Early Literacy Station for the Cloquet Public Library. The all-in-one learning station comes preloaded with more than 60 top-rated developmental software titles for kids.

“The library currently has four outdated computer stations for young children. It is our desire to gradually replace them with literacy stations that encourage, engage, and challenge youthful patrons through a variety of interactive programs promoting literacy, math, science, and the arts,” says Lisbeth Boutang, Children’s Librarian.

“We have already received confirmation from a private patron who is willing to donate a substantial amount to our project. We are looking to organizations and others to provide the additional funds to make this purchase possible.”

The total cost for the Early Literacy Station is approximately $2,750.00. One patron has already pledged 50 percent of the cost of one station ($1,750.00) as a challenge to organizations and individuals to make their own contributions.

For more information on the project and how you can contribute, call 879-1531.
