March 9, 2018 – The Grace A. Dow Memorial Library has announced its receipt of a $2,000 grant from The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation to be used for library operations. The Foundation began making this annual gift of $2,000 to the library in 1954 with a total of $128,000 given.

“We appreciate that the Trustees of the Foundation share Mrs. Dow’s lifelong love of the Library and reaffirm the value of the Library to our community through their continued support,” said Library Director Melissa Barnard.
