Rogers Free Library Community Grant Program

PThe Board of Directors of the Friends of the Rogers Free Library is pleased to announce the establishment of a Community Grant program.  The purpose of the Rogers Free Library Community Grant Program is to provide an opportunity for community groups/ organizations/clubs or individuals to receive funding for the research, design, and implementation of programs, practices, and services that connect the Rogers Free Library with the greater community.  Programs, products, and services that are both innovative and meet the changing needs of our population will be given top priority for funding.  Individual grant requests up to $5000 will be accepted. The Friends have set aside $25,000 annually to finance the Rogers Free Library Community Grant Program.

 Grant requests must explicitly demonstrate a connection with the Rogers Free Library. This connection might include use of the library facilities, resources, and/or personnel and may be written to cover professional development, registration fees for coursework, seminars, and lectures; materials and supplies; capital equipment; labor; marketing; printing, etc.

Guidelines and applications for the current funding cycle will be available in the library from May 1st on, and may be submitted online at the library website. Applications will be reviewed and approved quarterly beginning in September 2016.  Applications will be accepted at any time until the 2016 funds have been allocated. For further information, contact Joan Prescott, Library Director at the library or by email at prescottj069@gmail.com
