Results of the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund Grant Cycle

Sixteen grants totaling more than $70,000 awarded by the Community Foundation will be split among 13 libraries in the Finger Lakes Library System.  The grants come from the endowed fund, created by a bequest of nearly $3 million from the estate of Bernard Rosen, who intended the funds be used “to promote genuine intellectual curiosity and a lifelong love of reading and learning.”  The recipients include Tompkins County Public Library, $10,500, for Engaging Teen and Tweens at TCPL; Southworth Library Association, $4,066, for Family Storytimes; Lansing Community Library, $7,080, for Read, Lansing, Read; and Newfield Public Library, $4,500, for Assisting Rural Youth with the College Search Process.
