The Blue Earth County Library System (BECLS) has received a $4,725 grant for its “Home Delivery of Library Books and Materials” project from the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging (MNRAAA), through the Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA) and the CARES Act. These funds will provide postage and packaging for shipping and facilitating the return of books, audiobooks, movies, magazines, and other materials to Blue Earth County residents ages 60 and older. In addition to providing access to educational offerings, entertainment, and mental stimulation, this project aims to foster a sense of connection among patrons at increased risk of isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, through both the delivery of physical materials and the care and attention provided by regular communication with library staff.
