By Marge Rhodes, Friends of the Mill Creek Library.
Every year, the Friends of the Mill Creek Library (the “Friends”) offer professional development grants to local educators. The purpose of the Friends’ grants is to help provide literacy education and services for local teachers and schools.
In 2019, the Friends provided two such grants: one for adding new books to a local school library, and another to a special education teacher for attendance at a seminar providing continuing education in her specialty area.
Local educators are invited to apply for a grant by mailing an application, a resume and cover letter detailing interest in the grant, postmarked by March 15, 2020, to:
Friends of the Mill Creek Library
15429 Bothell-Everett Highway
Mill Creek, WA 98012
A copy of the application is available by contacting Carmen Fisher, Grants Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grant Awards will be announced at the meeting of the Friends on Wednesday, April 2, 2020.
