Thank You, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, for identifying the public library as a most valuable community asset.

I was so pleased to welcome JoAnn Price, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving board member and Alison Granger the Foundation’s senior investment officer, Farmington resident and library user to the Main Library on Tuesday August 3rd. It was my pleasure indeed, to personally thank these wonderful people for assisting in assessing the need and presenting the opportunity for me to apply for and receive a $30,000 grant for a technology project we have been planning to execute over the past few years. The Foundation has been very generous to Farmington Libraries during my watch with a $ 225,000 building grant required to complete the 2009-2010 $ 3,000,000, Barney Renovations Project, http://www.hfpg.org/NewsStories/NewsReleases/NewsArticle/tabid/517/smid/1546/ArticleID/127/reftab/550/Default.aspx and now by investing $30,000 in public technology. We are very grateful for this needed gift.
