Pilcrow Grant

Come in and check out our new selection of 94 children's books! 

The Ethel Everhard Memorial Library in Westfield was the proud recipient of the Pilcrow Grant, which provides new, quality, hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the United States. The library received a total of ninety-four children’s books. The books are currently on display at the library and are available for checkout. There is a variety of books available for a wide range of ages; including picture books, non-fiction books, and chapter books. The books were provided thanks to a generous donation from the Pilcrow Foundation, the Friends of the Ethel Everhard Memorial Library, and Mr. Hal Berenson and Mrs. Laura Ackerman of Colorado.
