A special thanks to the following. . . .

Mayo Clinic Health System

The L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library would like to thank Mayo Clinic Health System for providing grant funding to launch the Eau Claire Grows Community Seed Library.  The seed library allows residents to “borrow” seeds for free! The basic idea is to plant the seeds, let some of the plants go to seed, and then return a portion of the next generation seeds for others to borrow for the next growing season.

B. A. Mason Trust

The L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library would like to thank the B. A. Mason Trust for providing grant funding to purchase several MaKey MaKey kits for our teen technology programming.  MaKey MaKeys are invention kits for the 21st century that turn everyday objects into touchpads.  Connecting the touchpads to the Internet creates a variety of artistic, engineering, and design opportunities for teens to explore.
