Library Gets Grants for
New Computers
The Southold Free Library is proud to announce that
it has been selected as a 2014 grant recipient of the
“Building Stronger Neighborhoods Program”, sponsored
by the Long Island Community Foundation and the All
for the East End (AFTEE) Fund.
The projects funded by the program were selected
because they are “...inspiring, actionable, relevant to the
local community...and improve the lives of those who call
the East End home.”
The Long Island Community Foundation and the Board
of the AFTEE Fund announced the first grantees of its
Building Stronger Neighborhood Program this summer. “We received an overwhelming number of proposals from over 80 community organizations and it really
validates the extent of the needs out on the Island’s east
end,” said David Okorn, Long Island Community Foundation’s executive director. “We are very excited about
this collection of organizations and feel it addresses
those diverse and important set of needs within these
The Library requested funding for new computers to
meet the growing need for more computer access for
its patrons. With additional computers the Library plans
to offer patron programs relating to learning how to use
computers, the Internet and email.
We also want to thank New York State
Senator Kenneth P. LaValle for his
efforts and success in securing a grant
for our Library. These monies will also
be applied to our computer purchase
In total, the Library has received
$5,500 this season for new computers and is grateful for
the financial assistance and the recognition. We look
forward to working with our patrons in taking advantage
of the funding.
All purchases go toward supporting your community
library by funding:
