ORCHARD PARK BOOK LAUNCH
This spring the Meridian Library Foundation is raising funds to support the Children's Collection for Meridian Library's new Orchard Park branch (anticipated opening March 2022).
The Foundation has been able to raise over $6,000 in community donations during National Library Week & Idaho Gives, and will continue to fundraise to ensure Orchard Park has all the materials needed to be a valuable resource for our community for decades to come!

7/19/2021 UPDATE:
The Meridian Library Foundation recently received a $4,500 Grant from the ON Semiconductor Foundation for a new Form Labs 3D Printer for MLD's new unBound Technology Library.

We’re grateful to partner with the ON Semiconductor Foundation to expand the resources of the Meridian Library District. The ON Semiconductor Foundation made the purchase of this new 3D Printer possible due to its commitment to serving the needs of communities across the globe through the investment of resources. Since 2016, the company has funded more than $6.5 million in grants, employee matching and in-kind donations, as well as sponsorships and dollars-for-doers for employee volunteerism. “Investing in the communities in which we operate and where our employees live is critical to our organization as we look to continue our legacy of giving and volunteering,” said Theresa Haywood-McCarley, board secretary for the ON Semiconductor Foundation. “On behalf of the ON Semiconductor Foundation, we’re proud to support the work of the Meridian Library Foundation as we work toward making the world better together.”

We are delighted to announce that this new technology has been purchased and is now available to our community for use at the downtown technology branch.
