The Friends of Robert Trail Library has entered into a new partnership with Books to the Rescue, a nonprofit organization that supplies first responders with books for children in crisis. A portion of book sale proceeds will benefit the Rosemount Police Department and the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office.
First responders will be furnished with special book bags put together by Books to the Rescue. They will contain age-appropriate books, activities and stuffed animals intended to relieve some of the stress and anxiety children may be experiencing in traumatic situations.
Getting books into the hands of children who may not have them is one of the ways the Friends of Robert Trail Library supports the community. For more information, email [email protected]
