The Foundation recently entered the Oregon Community Foundation's 2017 Grantseekers Haiku Contest. The Grantseekers Haiku Contest challenges qualifying organizations to collapse a traditional grant proposal into the seventeen-syllable format of a haiku poem.
We chose to write our haiku about Baby's First Book. Baby's First Book helps create lifelong readers and library users, almost from birth. Through this program, the Jackson County Library Foundation guarantees that almost all of Jackson County’s new families will have at least one children’s book in their home.
