Dayton Magazine Highlights AUM McGregor Library Grant

McGregor Library GrantIn its “Back to School Guide,” Dayton Magazine featured the McGregor Library’s Ohio Book Awards & Authors grant. The Library received $750 in funds and purchased 45 books for student use.

“Our mission relates to social and environmental justice and the purchased books support these values,” said Antioch University Online Director of Library Services Dana Knott.

The article highlighted how the grant will benefit Antioch’s students. Some of the titles purchased include those nominated or awarded the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Ohioana Book Awards and the Anisfield-Wolf Award.

“One thing that I love about these grants as a librarian, and as a big reader and instructor, is that when you read these different titles and you experience different cultures, voices, and perspectives, literature has this kind of great power to create empathy and understanding,” added Knott in the article. “When students leave Antioch, we hope that they can take this knowledge and help others.”
