Rudman Grant 2019


We are honored to be recipients of a grant from the Rose & Samuel Rudman Library Trust again this year! This grant is specifically for collection development, so it allows us to purchase books to help flesh out areas in the library's collection that might be lacking. This year, we applied for assistance with audiobooks, Maine children's book award nominees, series completion, and romance! We have a few items from each category on display this month in our main room, along with posters that show all of our recent purchases with the funds from this grant. Many thanks to the Maine Community Foundation and the Rudman Trust!
