Martha Ellen Tye Foundation Annual Funding
We have received word from the Martha Ellen Tye Foundation that we have qualified to receive annual funding from this foundation that supports the arts in Marshall County. Gilman Public Library previously received funding until 2014, but were notified then we would no longer be qualified for funding, due to not being accredited. The director of the MET Foundation visited the library in late August; the board of the MET Foundation met in late September and voted to give us annual funding once again.
The MET Foundation's gift is especially helpful, in that it allows us to use these monies for ongoing expenses. This will help us greatly in meeting our annual budget. Many thanks to all the individuals who helped make accreditation, and this subsequent gift, possible.
