ByWater Solutions announces August 2022 Community Giveback winner

Press Release: ByWater Solutions [August 30, 2022]

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 August 2022 winner of the ByWater Community Giveback, the John G. McCullough Free Library in Vermont.

The funds will be used to update the library technology that will enhance both the patron and staff experience. Jennie Rozycki, Library Director, commented:

The John G. McCullough Library is The Little Library that Can! Although the 100-year-old building and the collection are relatively small, both are busy and vibrant from use. In recent years, the McCullough Library has vastly increased circulation, foot traffic, event offerings and participation.

The funds will be used in our library for computer technology (new barcode scanners, holsters, and thermal printers) to increase the speed and efficiency of our circulation team as they check out items to members, creating a more pleasant experience for both staff and members."

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.
