Stonington Free Library is proud to announce that it has received a $7,500.00 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The Quality of Life program awards grants to fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation’s mission and commitment to foster community engagement, enhance independence and promote healthy self-esteem. The Library will use the grant for accessibility improvements; specifically the award will support architectural design consultant fees for DeWright Design, LLC to develop accessibility modification plans.
After reviewing responses from our community survey and focus groups, it is clear that more user-friendly hours are what our community desires. We will be introducing new hours beginning on Monday, August 21.
