Generous Donation to the Minneola Schoolhouse Library

The Minneola Schoolhouse Library Receives

Generous Book Donation for Black History Month

 

Minneola, Fla – The African American Book Club of Clermont has honored Black History Month by donating over thirty-five brand new children’s books by black authors to the Minneola Schoolhouse Library. Included in the donation are picture books, children’s fiction, junior biographies and a handful of board books for the very young.

The African American Book Club of Clermont was founded in 2005 by Gloria Pasteur. Each year the group makes a substantial donation of books to a local library or school in the South Lake area. Since their formation, the group has donated over a thousand books.

In the past, other Lake County Libraries have benefited from their largess, and this year the Minneola Schoolhouse Library was the recipient of so gracious a gift. Gloria, and the group’s current president, Joann Everett chose the titles for this year’s campaign and delivered the items to the grateful little library. The books will be available to check out the first week of March.

The Lake County Library System mission is to provide and promote life enriching experiences that exceed expectations for Lake County residents and visitors. The Minneola Schoolhouse Library is located at 100 South Main Avenue in Minneola, Florida. For more information, call Josie Dix at the library at (352) 432-3921 Ext 380 or email jdix@minneola.us.
