$7500 Grant Received

The Reed City Area District Library (RCADL) was awarded matching grant funds from the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development (USDA RD) in the amount of $7500. Through special rules and restrictions the Library was able to claim $7500 of the $75,000 equipment grant money the RCADL lost when the millage failed last August.

A total of $10,000 worth of media equipment and furniture was purchased and will be used at the 410 West Upton location until funds can be raised to renovate the 829 South Chestnut location. A check presentation was held on Monday, December 15, 2014 at 6:00 pm in the Reed City Area District Library (RCADL).

The Library will continue to hold fundraisers throughout the community and accept donations at the Upton Avenue location to fund the new library renovation project. The lease at the current Upton Street location expires June 9, 2016 and the next fundraiser will be the “Love your Library Walk” in February.

Additional information about events, renovation project plans and fundraisers can be found on this web site and at the Library.
