In March, the Foundation passed a resolution donating $100,000 to the library’s COVID-19 relief effort. The resolution allocated the money be directed towards assisting students and their families in the provision of prepared or packed meals and food for students who would have received in school provisions or food for weekends. It also provided funding to the ever-changing needs of the community as identified by the library.
Since then, more than 270,000 meals, 180,000 diapers, 15,000 books and 200 PBS Kids Playtime Pads have been distributed at designated library branches. If you would like to support the effort, visit: foundation.slcl.org/membership-support
