Waterloo's Lincoln Elementary gets library upgrade

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

One Waterloo Elementary has got a little bit of a makeover.

Target and the Heart of America Foundation, a non-profit that promotes literacy, unveiled Lincoln Elementary's remodeled library Friday afternoon.

During a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, a small group of students got the chance to tour their new library.
Officials from Target, local and state representatives, as well as school officials spoke during the library's dedication.

Lincoln Elementary principal Stephanie Mohome said, "There's brand new pain, there's brand new carpeting, tables, chairs, different things like that, but there are also 2000 brand new book titles, new technology that come with this and it's really a kid friendly space for kids to learn."

This library renovation is one of 42 libraries across the country that will receive a makeover this year through the Target school library makeover program.
