On December 11, 2017, the General Perry Benson Chapter of the DAR donated 17 new children’s books about the American Revolution to the Caroline County Public Library.  The books cover topics such as Valley Forge, the Constitution, and George Washington, and include both fiction and nonfiction suitable for ages 9-16.

 

The General Perry Benson Chapter of the DAR is based in Easton, MD.  The book donation project was spearheaded by Ms. Frances Kingery, Chair of the Literacy Committee, with assistance from Helene Butte, Chapter Regent.  “It is so important for today’s children to get to know the history of our country, and these books provide a vivid glimpse of the birth of the United States,” said Ms. Kingery.

 

The DAR raises funds each year to purchase books for a local library. “We are so pleased to add these titles to our collection.  Our young readers are sure to discover something new about the American Revolution through these books,” said Amanda Courie, Youth Services Manager at the Caroline County Public Library.

 

The books will be on display at the library and customers of all ages are welcome to browse and check them out.
