MBLC LEA Grant Expands NOBLE OverDrive Collection

A $33,000 grant from the Mass. Board of Library Commissioners’ LEA program will be used for OverDrive titles in topics that will address some of the needs exposed by the effects of the pandemic on our users.

The funds will be used to bolster our collection with workforce skills titles for jobseekers, study skills support in times of remote and hybrid learning, picture book videos to help young learners with reading skills while providing some diversion to aid working-from-home parents, and provide a collection of Spanish and Portuguese language titles, a sizable population in our area that has not been represented in our collection.

The new titles are beginning to appear in our collection now.
