Dryden’s Southworth Library Association received a National Endowment for the Humanities grant from the American Library Association, one of only 75 awarded in the country.
The library will host a reading and discussion program for at-risk youth focusing on teen violence and suicide.
About a dozen teens from the William George Agency will read and discuss books with themes of violence or suicide.
The teens will keep copies of the books.
Sessions begin March 27.
