Land of Lincoln Bookshare just received our first grant! We submitted an application to the Community Grants Program of the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln and were selected. In fact, two of the funds decided to support us, the Hanson Family Fund and the Kellner Charitable Fund. We could not be more grateful to the managers of these funds for believing in our mission, and to the Community Foundation for the wonderful work they do.
The monies provided will allow Bookshare to hold more Free Book Fairs at area schools, reaching hundreds more children! If you know of any local schools that could benefit from our programs, please go to the comments and let us know.
