Bonham, Texas -- Bonham Public Library was recently presented a check from the M.W. & Fair Miller Foundation.

"We truly appreciate their support of the library," said John Hayden, Library Director. "We were given a generous amount that we will use for the Summer Reading Program, Toddler Time, Coding, Robotics, Learning Academy Pre-K tablets, STEAM tablets, Teen Media Center and more. Launchpad Pre-K Academy tablets gives preschool-aged children 5 different paths to explore on their way to kindergarten. Using this Academy can help little learners develop the skills needed to enter their first year of school and inspire them to try new things with confidence. STEAM Academy tablets offers an interdisciplinary approach that weaves together the science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills learned in the classroom and connects them to things kids see every day."
