4 local libraries share $2,500 from Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation

The Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation has awarded a total of $2,500 in grants to libraries in Jewett City, Moosup, Sterling and Voluntown.

In Jewett City, the Slater Library will use its $1,000 grant toward the purchase of new computer work tables and additional desktop computers for the adult computer area in order to meet increased demand.

The Aldrich Free Public Library in Moosup will apply its $500 grant toward replacing some of their computers for public use, in order to continue to provide patrons with resources for job searching, homework, and the development of computer skills.

The Foundation’s $500 grant to the Sterling Public Library will be used to purchase racks and shelves for the free clothing bank, and to provide adult computer classes to library patrons through EastConn.

In Voluntown, the public library’s $500 award from the Foundation will create a core collection of educational materials and math manipulatives for children in grades pre-K through 12 to supplement childhood education, especially for home-schooled youngsters.

The Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation awarded nearly $50,000 to area non-profit organizations this year, according to Foundation President Kevin Merchant. In the 10 years since it was established, the Foundation has provided almost $450,000 to support communities served by the Bank, with nearly $54,000 going to local libraries.
