Grant allows local library to enhance African literature

The Kewaunee Public Library is one of 34 Wisconsin libraries receiving funds from the 2021 Read Africa Grant Program. To receive this grant, local libraries submitted a proposal to the program at University of Wisconsin-Madison. The $20,000 grant will be distributed between these 34 libraries to help fund the expansion of titles that are about Africa or written by African authors. Carol Petrina, director of the Kewaunee Public library, describes what their proposal entailed.



The story walk that they will be organizing will be at the Kewaunee Public library, and it will include the book Ostrich and Lark by Marilyn Nelson. They will be adding titles for all ages. There will be titles for young children, such as Baby Goes to Market and young adult novels like When Rain Clouds Gather, Transcendent Kingdom. These books and others will soon be at the Kewaunee Public Library for those who want to learn more about Africa.
