Letter of Support
Back around 2003 after the first-ever Teen Summer Reading Program at Auburn Public Library we decided to write a grant for $500 to FOML for fall/winter programming and called it Arts Infusion....two of the offerings would include comic book drawing and guitar instruction for teens and we got the grant....(I still have the hand-written letter confirming that we had gotten the grant). We would not have been able to provide those programs, at the time, without the grant.
Last fall, the public library in Raymond which has a teeny tiny budget for programming AND how valued this library is for children we decided to submit a grant for $750 for informational children's books and a Maine author for a bedtime story time. The library was awarded the grant....exactly 10 years later....so FOML has been doing great work for a long time....
Grants aren't the only thing they offer....if you have a moment take a look at the website.
I have just sent my check in for $25 to the Friends of Maine Libraries to renew my membership and have printed out some brochures from their website to hand out in the library. This check is one of best checks I have written in a while!!
