On Thursday, January 24, 2019, The Friends of the Goodnow Library received a $15,000 grant from the Middlesex Savings Bank. Alice Levine, president of the Friends and Susan Pettit, vice president, accepted the gift on behalf of the organization at a reception held at Middlesex Savings Bank headquarters in Westborough, MA. This grant will be used to expand the Friends annual support of programming and resources not included in the annual town budget for the Goodnow Library in Sudbury.
“Local libraries play a major role in making our communities the special places they are, said Mike McAuliffe, president and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank. “They provide important resources that residents of all ages can utilize and enjoy. We are pleased to be making this gift to support all that they do.”
The $15,000 gift to The Friends of the Goodnow Library is part of a cumulative gift of $1.4 million that Middlesex Savings Bank distributed to 84 nonprofit organizations including libraries, food pantries, and senior centers within the Bank’s retail branch territory.
