In April 2021, the Glenview Public Library Foundation invested in four grants worth $17,300.
33-1/3 Series ($1,000) created online webinars with authors whose books focus on a music album contained in the Library’s vinyl LP collection.
Pop-Up Summer Programs ($6,000) allowed the Library to create outdoor programming; just in time for good weather and the ability to resume safe, in-person activities.
Summer Reading Program ($3,300) provided communication support to re-energize participation in the Library’s long-standing Summer Reading Program.
Glenview Reads Together ($7,000) allowed the Library to expand Glenview Reads Together, an annual community-wide reading program. The gift supports book discussions, activities, and lectures during the month-long event. Among other events of the program, the Foundation grant allowed the Library to give away 100 copies of the book, signed by the illustrator, Nate Powell.
