Library project

For the past several years, the Brazil Public Library has sponsored, "Project School Supply."

New basic school supplies will be collected and then equally divided among the seven elementary schools, North Clay Middle School, Northview High School, the Cumberland Academy and Clay City Jr./Sr. High School.

The supplies will be delivered to the schools before the new school year begins and distributed to needy students at the discretion of principals and teachers.

The library is asking anyone interested to consider donating so it can equip needy students with new school supplies.
