Each month, ByWater Solutions selects one library to be awarded $500. These funds are meant to support libraries and their communities and fill gaps in funding to further library goals.
We are excited to announce our June 2022 winner of the ByWater Community Giveback, the Morristown Centennial Library in Morrisville, Vermont.
The funds will be used for summer library outreach events, including pop-up storytimes at the local farmer's market, Books at the Beach, a nighttime market event, and more!
"Summer is short but fabulous here in Vermont, and people are out at farmers markets and community music events, hiking trails in our town forest and swimming at the local lake. We would like to be able to make library outreach a part of our summer reading program, with the idea being that reading is something that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, and certainly out of the walls of the library come summertime."

About the ByWater Community Giveback
We will select one library a month to donate $500 to their Non-profit 501c3 organization such as Friends of the Library, Library Foundation, or other funding entity. These funds are meant to support libraries and their communities and fill gaps in funding to further library goals. We LOVE libraries. Our team is made up of librarians and library fanatics. We're always looking for ways to give back and create opportunities where we can to support libraries. This is a small token of thanks for all the hard work libraries do in their communities every day.
