Columbia County Rural Library District received funds from Banner Bank and The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library to replace old and worn children’s books. Many of the well-loved books, classics, and favorite authors, like Dr. Seuss, are in need of being replaced. The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library submitted a grant to Banner Bank to help CCRLD purchase replacement titles of worn books. Banner Bank generously awarded the Friends with $200. In addition the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library agreed to donate an additional $500 to CCRLD. CCRLD will be able to purchase about 60 new library-bound replacement books with the funds of $700.
