  • During COVID, donating $10,000 for the purchase of e-books
  • Purchasing equipment and technology such as an educational computer for the Children’s Room; Zoom licensing and equipment used during the pandemic; and a video camera and editing software for staff to use to create promotional and instructional videos.
  • Distributing 2,000 gently used children’s books to local child care centers
  • Contributing funds for children’s and teen programs and summer reading incentives annually
