The Windham Public Library is pleased to announce it is the recipient of a $30,000 grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. The grant will be used to partially fund an estimated $338,000 project to reconfigure the library’s circulation desks. The project will combine two circulation desks into one, add two small meeting/study rooms upstairs, add a quiet reading area, and create a better defined teen area. The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation was created in 1986 to provide support for Maine communities. The Foundation is a private non-profit organization that promotes strengthening and supporting communities and draws upon the values and spirituality of the founders. The Foundation has a special interest in organizations and people who have fewer options to the usual channels of resources, focusing on community-based initiatives in the State of Maine only.
The Windham Public Library appreciates the generosity of the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation and is looking forward to getting the project underway this summer.
