By now, for most of us, the deadline of tax preparation has passed and our taxes have been filed. One of the many forms that you might have seen is Schedule CP for charitable contributions and the purchase of park passes. This form can be used to make donations to the Maine Public Library Fund.
The money donated on this form is used to directly benefit libraries throughout Maine and support programs and services with grant funding. This year Windham Public Library is the recipient of a $2,500 grant from the Maine Public Library Fund. The money will be used to purchase two new iPads and accompanying technology equipment to expand and enhance technology tools in the Children’s Room. We are so pleased to be awarded this grant and excited to be able to share with the community new tools for learning. I encourage you to donate to the Maine Public Library Fund, using Schedule CP in future years. Windham Public Library has been awarded grants from this fund twice so far. The money donated is a huge help to libraries throughout the state and supports a variety of new programs. Visit the Maine State Library website for more information about the Maine Public Library Fund and the other libraries awarded funds www.maine.gov/msl/tax/. More information about the new equipment will be provided soon. Watch our newsletter, website, and Facebook!
