Letter: Johnson, thanks you Bessie Minor Swift Foundation

Thank you to the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation

We are delighted to learn that the Friends of the Grand County Library have been awarded a grant from the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation on behalf of the Sky-Hi News. We look forward to using these funds to support Granby Library and Kremmling Library as they develop the Discovery Club after-school program. Grand County Library District (GCLD) will launch these programs in September, 2016 and they will be provided weekly throughout the school year.

We are grateful for the support of youth programming in Grand County. With the LEGO kits, books, and supplies providing children many opportunities for planning and creating projects, our third through fifth graders should relish participating in the Discovery Clubs. We anticipate hearing success stories from library staff, school faculty members, parents, children, and the community as this program becomes part of the after-school opportunities for Grand County’s children.
