TheBraveJourneyThe Barton County Library has received an Author Visit Grant from the Missouri State Library. The library will use grant funding, totaling $1,227, to offer presentations by children’s author, Jefferson Knapp, at both Lamar East Primary and Lamar West Elementary. Mr. Knapp will discuss the creative writing process that helped him publish the books in his Kingdom at the End of the Driveway Series. The series details the epic saga of Benjamin Biggs, his animal friends and their courageous adventures. Funds from the grant will also be used to purchase the full series of five books for the Barton County Public Library and the West Elementary Library. Each teacher in 2nd-5th grades will also receive a copy of the first book in the series for their classrooms. The presentations will take place on February 21, 2019.   This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
