Tenterfield Public Library was one of 54 country libraries to receive funding
Tenterfield Public Library has been awarded a $1,500.00 Grant from National Backyard Cricket, a fundraising program established by national charity The LBW Trust. National Backyard Cricket raises funds for education projects offered in country libraries across Australia and overseas tertiary education. The funds were the result of the inaugural National Backyard Cricket program which was held around Australia over last summer. In support of country libraries, Harvey Norman have matched the funds raised for libraries enabling the program to support the technology needs of more libraries.
Tenterfield Public Library is one of 54 country libraries across Australia to receive a funding grant. The library grant-making process was managed by Friends of Libraries Australia (FOLA), a national non-profit that represents the 12-million Australians who are members of their local public libraries. Tenterfield Public Library will use the funding to provide Physical Resources to the surrounding community.
The grant to Tenterfield Public Library will be provided in the form of gift cards from Harvey Norman which will enable the purchase of much needed, new equipment.
