By Marjorie Rhodes, Friends of the Mill Creek Library Secretary.
After a successful book sale at the North Creek Presbyterian Church on May 18, 2019, the Grant Committee of the Friends of the Mill Creek Library met to review grant applications from local educators.
The Committee had several well-thought-out grant requests, and selected the following two applicants to receive grants:
1. Sara Herber, Teacher/Librarian at Heatherwood Middle School, who requested a grant to update book titles in the school library by purchasing fresh summer reading titles; and
2. Patricia Michaelle Frank, a Jackson High School teacher for attendance at conference in Seattle for special education English reading specialists. (Ms. Frank teaches students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other reading difficulties.)
The focus of the Friends of the Mill Creek Library is to help provide literacy education and services for local teachers and schools. They were excited to be able to provide these two grants.
