Join Us June 30 at noon for a Community Grant Planning Meeting
The library found out late Friday, June 25th, that we were one of the 34 libraries selected nationwide to receive a ALA COVID Library Relief Grant (no match required). We will be receiving $30,000 from the American Library Association (ALA) for teens and young adults programming, which includes hiring a part-time Library Assistant.
The project is for six months and all input is welcome.
A simple Lunch will be served at the library tomorrow starting at Noon.
A Few Things We Will Be Talking About
- Teens will be learning Tryon history
- STEM Gardening, growing milkweed and pollinator gardening and Monarch Butterfly cultivation
- Creating a mural
- Creating a tech café for teens
- Life lessons, like map reading and more.
Copies of the budget and narrative will be shared at the Noon planning lunch meeting 6/30/21.
Thank you American Library Association.
