In brief: Library foundation wins grant

SPOKANE COUNTY – The Spokane Public Library Foundation recently received a grant from the Fred Meyer Fund. The $30,000 grant will provide family programming in 2012 that supports education in science.

“Summer Science at the Library and Beyond” will enhance the 2012 summer reading programming with science based presentations at library branches and the West Central Community Center and allow the library to make the events more available to working families. Parents will also have an opportunity to check out family science kits that will guide them in at-home science based projects. The kits will be available throughout the program. The Library will also be able to continue to provide science based “Books for Little Investigators” to preschoolers at daycare centers in Spokane.
