Students in Heather Conti’s fourth grade class at Robert H. Jackson Elementary School in Frewsburg are learning about animals and their natural habitats.
As part of a science project, students selected a unique animal and utilized Myers Memorial Library to complete a research project. Since many of the library’s animal books were from the 1990s, a grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation’s Blossom Fund allowed the library to purchase new books.
In total, 24 hardcover books highlighting reptiles, sea creatures, mammals and ecosystems have been added to the library’s collection. When the school year is over, the books will remain at the library for students throughout the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System to use.
