Wrong!  Deconstructing 5 Famous History Stories

$5000 Grant Award!!!

The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation has awarded our library $5,000 to be used to assist with the library re-roofing project. The library will be upgrading the roof from asphalt shingles to a metal roof. “Our trustees were pleased to join the people of Glennie in supporting the Curtis Township Library,” said Macauley (Mike) Whiting, Jr., president and treasurer for the foundation. “Our Foundation’s founder, Grace A. Dow, was a strong supporter of libraries, as demonstrated by her fifty years of volunteer board service to our local library in Midland. We know the important role libraries play in providing opportunities for residents to meet, learn, and prepare for the opportunities of tomorrow.”

 

If Curtis Township community members wish to make a contribution to this project (we have raised $4,633 in local donations so far) it can be sent to: Roofing Fund, Curtis Township Library, 4884 Bamfield Road, Glennie, MI 48737
