Introducing Biblioteca en una Caja!

We have some new additions to our Book Club in a Box Program. We're proud to announce Bibliteca en una Caja. All of the titles available through the Family Kits are in Spanish. These kits seek to be a step towards meeting the literacy needs of the growing number of Spanish-speaking residents in the state of Mississippi. Any library can use these resources! Libraries sign up for the kits for a three-month period (time to receive, distribute, discuss, and send the kit back)
