Library Awarded Pilcrow Grant!


The JC Wheeler Public Library was recently awarded the Children's Book Project grant award from The Pilcrow Foundation! We are so excited to share this news with you. We were selected to be sponsored through a generous donation from Mr. & Mrs. Reed and Linda Wicander of Michigan. We received 68 books with a total retail value of $1,202! We also received 2 books from Shout Mouse Press, whose mission is "Through writing workshops that lead to professional publication, we empower those from marginalized backgrounds to tell their own stories in their own voices and, as published authors, to act as leaders and agents of change." We also received an additional 21 books provided by a generous donation from Mr. & Mrs. Hal Berenson and Laura Ackerman of Colorado. Lastly, we received an additional 17 books related to health and wellness. These were provided by a generous donation from Drs. Bill Strawbrige and Meg Wallhagen of California. We would like to extend our thanks to these wonderful donors! Our small library because greater because of people like you!

Finally, we also like to Thank our own Friends of the Martin Library who provided $400 through local fundraising to make all this possible! You guys ROCKED our Book Sale and Festival of Trees! Great job and Thank you!
