The Texas Book Festival has awarded the Bedford Public Library a literacy grant of $1,500. The grant will be used to support Library Buddies: Free Tutoring @ the Library. “This grant will enable the library to provide hands-on learning tools for use during tutoring sessions,” said Maria Redburn, Library Manager.
“Our teens are very conscientious about the success of their students,” said Jeanne Green, Community Services Supervisor. “These teaching aids will just make the tutoring sessions that much more meaningful for the tutors and the children.”
We are excited to have received this grant which will help us to enhance our already popular tutoring program.
