PHOTO: Walmart presents check to Barrow Book Partnership

The Barrow Book Partnership, along with the Barrow Community Foundation, received a $2,500 Walmart Community Grant from the Winder store. The Winder Walmart's management team includes several former Barrow County School System students and graduates. The grant will provide age-appropriate books for Barrow's youngest children (birth to 5 years old) to build their home library, and will provide parent educational opportunities about how to nurture the growth of a child's learning foundation through daily reading, according to leaders. Parents will also receive information about all the free resources available at our three Barrow public libraries and opportunities to register for free PINES public library cards. “Thank you, Winder Walmart, for supporting our mission!” leaders said.
