At the celebration presented by the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta, 28 organizations received grants totaling almost $212,000.00.
The Town of Cardston Library Board operating as the Jim and Mary Kearl Library was fortunate to receive $4,000.00 for “The Library Opens Doors” project.
A project that will change the entrance to the lower level Children’s Program area.
· Removing the recessed alcove will:
· Create a cleaner, safer area for the library’s smallest patrons
· Remove a hideout for those wishing to evade local merchants
· Easier snow removal
The foundations philanthropic donations remove financial barriers for the groups that are often struggling for money. Our local library feels lucky to have had their application accepted for one of these awards.
