The Andover Free Library Receives Support

Andover Library Check PresentationThe Allegany County Area Foundation recently awarded a $285.45 grant to the Andover Free Library. Linda Adams, Director of the Andover Free Library said that the money would be used to repaint the children’s section of the library. This award was made possible from the earnings of the Doris O. Church Fund held by the Foundation.

The present building for the Andover Free Library was a gift from Andrew Carnegie back in 1912. The library was constructed by contractor Scott Prest for $5,000. The shelving in the Children’s Room was created by Donald Baker with the material being purchased with bequest monies fom the Norbert Lynch’s estate. Throughout the years many repairs and renovations have preserved the original beauty of this library.

The Andover Free library is located at 40 Main Street in Andover. For more information about this library, please visit their web site at: http://www.andoverfreelibrary.org/.

The Allegany County Area Foundation holds assets near 8 million dollars and continues to add new funds each year. The endowed funds continue to grow in perpetuity to enrich and improve the lives of our Allegany County citizens. This past year the Foundation awarded $239,300 in scholarships alone.
