bathlibrary 300x167 - Dorrman Library Receives for Senior Lending LibraryThe Dormann Library is pleased to announce that we have won a $1000.00 2021 Outreach Mini-Grant for the creation of a Lending Library for Senior Living and Long Term Care Facilities, a special collection of large print books intended for use exclusively by local assisted living facilities. A new selection of titles will be delivered monthly by library staff for the reading pleasure of the residents.

This project is supported by outreach funds awarded by the Southern Tier Library System’s Coordinated Outreach Services Advisory Council. The STLS COSAC provides grants to enable members to strengthen services to targeted outreach populations. Outreach Mini-Grants are designed to fund pilot projects for the implementation or expansion of local library services to outreach populations and to support libraries in working with populations that may not currently be using library services. The Dormann prides itself on providing services to those who cannot physically attend the programs and other community events held at our physical location. We thank STLS for helping us achieve our goals.
