Supplemental Collection Equity Award Y2 - North Bend Public Library

The Library will purchase materials for the Young Adult collection. This collection was recently weeded for age, condition, and interest and needs a refresh. We intend to purchase fiction and nonfiction items in a variety of media formats, including print, graphic, and video. Our goal is to improve the appeal of the collection so that more teens use it and are introduced to the wide variety of programs and services available to improve their lives at the library.

The Library recently received a programming grant from our local coordinated care organization for teen programs related to behavioral and social determinants of health. This Collection Equity Award would allow us to create a better circulating collection to support those programming efforts.
