Auction funds to buy audio books for kids

Posted on: July 21, 2013

Murphy librarian Jeff Murphy often sees young visitors who have problems reading.  He has found that audio books have been a lifesaver for some. 

“Sometimes we have a child who does not read well but has to read a book for school,” he says.  When he gives them an audio version of the book, it not only helps them keep up in school, it gets them interested in reading.

This is why funds raised at Friends of Murphy Library’s August 9 Silent Auction will be used to purchase audio books for young readers. The funds will also purchase audio books for adults, and foreign language audio books.  The auction runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.2013SilentAuctionpictures
