Lake Andes Carnegie Library was recently notified that it was selected to receive a Revisiting the Founding Era programming grant in the amount of $1000.

Revisiting the Founding Era is a three-year initiative designed to bring libraries and their communities together to explore the continuing relevance of the Founding Era by reading, discussing, and sharing insights into the writings of Americans who experienced it firsthand.

Mary Jo Parker, library director, stated that the library is going to focus on Native American foods and Native American games and spice it up with some storytelling, beading etc.

The library received its grant award for funding in the fourth round, which is next year, but they will have plenty of time to make plans.
