2023 Grant Awards Power the Library
The Friends of the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community is grateful to the foundations, clubs and charities who make grants and awards to support the library. They include:
The Friends of the Library appreciates grants from these local charities in fiscal year 2023-24:
- The Cedar Creek Club Charitable Fund’s grant will enable the Library to acquire more quality books and periodicals for children and teenagers. The library will use this grant to cover the annual cost of purchasing age-appropriate books from the Junior Library Guild.
- The Church of the Good Shepherd’s grant will expand the library’s collection of Large Print books, which are increasingly in demand. The Large Print collection is an essential print resource for those with vision difficulties or print decoding difficulties.
- The CWO grant will be used by the library to pay the costs associated with educational programs, such as the summer learning program, Professor WhizzPop, NC Aquarium, Live Animal Ambassadors, American Eagle Foundation Birds of Prey, and science, technology, engineering, arts, and math programs.
- The Wade Hampton Golf Club Foundation Donor Advised grant will enable the library to obtain important E-Resources including e-Books and digital audiobooks. The demand for these products and the cost of them has increased significantly in recent years and the funds will allow the library to meet an important need. The grant will have an immediate impact on the Library and its patrons, and enable the Library to expand its digital collections.
