Phoenicia Library receives grant

On anniversary of Hurricane Irene, Pitney Bowes Foundation provides $35,000 to help school and public libraries Thanks to a generous grant of $35,000 from Pitney Bowes Foundation, the American Library Association has distributed $3,500 in donations to 10 libraries. Last year, Hurricane Irene caused widespread destruction and major flooding in the Northeast during the last week of August 2011. Libraries were not spared, with many suffering extensive damage, forcing closings, lost materials and equipment. The local communities rallied in support of their libraries over the past year, making great progress to re-establish services, but recovery is a long process. These grants will help the following ten libraries continue rebuilding their collections and resources.
