The Superior Public Library recently received a $10,000 grant from the Mead Witter Foundation, Inc., to be used for print materials. Our library is already purchasing many new fiction and nonfiction titles, children’s materials and magazines with this grant funding. The Mead Witter Foundation’s 2011 Library Grant Program was “designed to provide help in an area where budgets have been tight and community services may be stressed.” We thank the Mead Witter Foundation of Wisconsin Rapids for its generosity to our community’s library.
