The Dike Public Library and the New Hartford Martin Memorial Library recently collaborated to provide a free book to every child in preschool through 4th grade in the DNH school district. Dike Public Library Director Billie Dall wrote a grant to promote parent-child interaction in a positive manner. The 2 libraries worked together to reach every child in the school system. Chris Thompson of the New Hartford Martin Memorial Library created bookmarks to include in each book with information about the libraries and to credit the funding source. DNH staff helped the libraries to pass them out to each child in the school during the week of September 20. This program was made possible by a grant from the DHS Northern Iowa Service Area, Local Decategorization Projects and the Central Iowa Juvenile Detection Center.
