Donor Spotlight

Best Buy Children's Foundation recently provided a $10,000 community grant to Friends. Funds were used to purchase LEGO EV3 robotics kits which will be used for Teen Robotics.


Friends have also provided funding to the library for the purchase of LEGO NXT robotics kits which are used in Rockin' Robotics for 10-12 year olds, as well as LEGO We-Do kits used in Junior Robotics for 7-9 year olds.
