Five Hundred Books Donated to The Dalles-Wasco County Library

The Dalles-Wasco County Library received 500 new children’s books on Wednesday night, July 29th.

The Oregon Child Development Coalition in partnership with Columbia Gorge Community College Child Care Partners delivered the books at a community celebration held at the library.

The books are part of a $10,000 early literacy grant by the Oregon Early Learning Division. Many of the books are multi-lingual or have multi-cultural stories, which are meant to promote dual language literacy.
