We Got a Grant...

And Madbury will have a preschool playground!

 After many months of planning, we are excited to announce that the library has been awarded a grant for just over $14,000, to install a natural playground outside the Children's Room. The funds are part of the American Rescue Act Plan (ARPA)  and the award comes from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the NH State Library, The grant funds will be combined with other money raised--especially Lorraine Morong memorial funds--to create a story time circle near the building and a full outdoor play and learning space.
