Grant for $1548!

Friends, we are so excited to share this good news! We have received a $1,548 grant from the F.T. and Anna C. Manley Charitable Trust.

This funding will be used as “matching funds” for another grant that will be providing the library with 6 new public computers next year. We are so thankful for this opportunity to provide much needed new public computers for our community! (special thanks to library clerk Dianne Heim for the photo op!)

New Bench

Thanks to a 2020 grant from the Tri-County Arts Council we have this lovely new bench made by local artist Tracy Fiegl. Come sit a spell, there’s even an outlet to charge your devices and our wifi is always on. (*This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by Tri-County Arts Council.)
