Community Foundation of Marquette County Grant
The library was recently the recipient of a $300.00 grant through the Gwinn Area Community Fund in partnership with the Community Foundation of Marquette County. With this grant we were able to offer Lego Clubs this summer during our Summer Reading Program. Both clubs were well-attended and led by our young adult volunteers.
In the fall we will offer After-school Lego Clubs and have building time during Story Time at least once a month for the smaller children. Watch our website and Facebook page for more information later this summer. Thank you so much to the Community Funds for supporting this project.
