During the week of February 26 to March 5, the library catalog will undergo necessary maintenance and upgrading. During this time, all patrons must bring their library cards with them to the library in order to check out materials. In addition, no holds can be placed or processed during that week.

Fontana Regional Library’s Reading Rover Bookmobile has received a $1000 grant from the Swain County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation.

The funding will support the Rover’s storytime visits to preschools and daycare centers in Swain County. Last year, Rover, which operates in Jackson, Macon, and Swain Counties, as well as the Qualla Boundary, served more than 130 Swain County children each month and checked out an average of 265 books and early literacy items each month at its visits to daycare centers and preschools. The grant funding will be used to purchase books and materials for the Rover, as well as help with vehicle maintenance and fuel costs.

“Keeping Rover on the road visiting preschoolers and their teachers is a priority for Fontana Regional Library,” said Regional Director Karen Wallace. “This grant will help us meet our goal of sharing the world of books and reading with the youngest residents of Swain County.”
