Launchpad_NewsFlash

The Concord Public Library is the recipient of $5,742 in grant funding thanks to federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds and made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the New Hampshire State Library. The grant funds received will support the Concord Public Library’s efforts to provide outdoor programming for all ages and innovative educational devices for children and young adults.
 
Using these grant funds, the library has purchased a portable PA system and a large popup tent. The equipment will be used at live music events, outdoor storytimes, STEAM activities, and other cultural and educational events. The library is also purchasing educational tablets called Launchpads, and audio/print book kits called Bookpacks, for families to borrow. These tablets and kits are designed to make early literacy and education fun and accessible.
 
Those interested in accessing or learning more about the library’s programs, collections, and services should call and speak with a librarian at 603-225-8670, by email at library@concordnh.gov, or visit the library at 45 Green St., Concord, NH 03301.
