Meridian library foundation receives $250k grant
“This is a unique new library location, designed with an emphasis on accessibility and adaptability,” said Library
The Foundation is the proud recipient of a $30,500 grant from Together Treasure Valley to purchase 15 iPads & 20 laptops for Meridian Library District's new Orchard Park Library Makerspace!
We'd like to thank the Whittenberger Foundation for generously awarding the Foundation a $3,500 grant to purchase youth books for Meridian Library District's new Orchard Park Library!
Mrs. Ethel Bales Whittenberger was an elementary school teacher, and was deeply interested in the welfare and education of children; the Whittenberger Foundation supports innovative & enriching projects that significantly improve the quality of life for children and young people, and we are honored to partner with them as we put new books on the shelves for all kids in the Treasure Valley to read, learn, and be entertained!
Thank you to the Greater Boise Rotary Foundation for generously awarding the Meridian Library Foundation a $3000 Small Grant for a special youth collection for Orchard Park that includes materials like the Social Thinking Curriculum (that teach self-regulation, social-emotional skills, & more) for parents, caregivers, and educators of children with various special needs and abilities.
The Meridian Library District also pledged to earmark $3000 for this special collection for a dedicated total of $6000 for this "Special Needs Book Collection".
