The Tocker Foundation folks are great friends who have supported our library in many ways, over many years. Their mission of support for rural libraries is articulated in the following words from their website:
“Public libraries play a vital role as guardians of equal access, intellectual freedom, and objective stewardship of information. This role becomes critical in our state’s rural areas where libraries are an intrinsic part of all community activities and gatherings.”
We are blessed to receive a 2016 Tocker Foundation grant in the amount of $5,600 to be directed towards enhancements of our literary collection and funding of the purchase of food supplies for our 2016 summer programs. Thank you Tocker Foundation!
