Winnie Belle Learned Grant Award
The Bradford Public Library recently received $1500.00 from Vermont Public Library Foundation (VPLF) and the Winnie Belle Learned Fund. The Winnie Belle Learned Fund was established by Dr. Burnett Rawson in honor of his benefactress Ms. Winnie Belle Learned, a Vermont educator, with the goal of helping Vermont libraries develop services to foster literacy, love of learning, critical analysis, and intellectual exploration for children and teens. During this latest competitive grant period, the Bradford Public Library was one of the Vermont Libraries receiving grant money to be used for children’s books! VPLF awarded $19,100 in individual grants ranging from $500 to $2,500.
