The Boone County (Ark.) Library will benefit from a $5,000 Arvest Foundation grant.
The gift to the Boone County Library Foundation was announced recently and its primary purpose is for the construction of new reading/study rooms at the library.
“We are so appreciative of the Arvest Foundation’s generosity,” Boone County Library director Ginger Schoeneberger said. “These new spaces will benefit local students, in particular, as well as the community as a whole. We are fortunate to have support from community partners like the Arvest Foundation”
The new rooms will serve many purposes, expanding space needed for study sessions, tutoring, test proctoring, research, meetings and more.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation,” said Scott Tennyson, community bank president for Arvest in Harrison. “We all recognize and understand the importance of investing in our youth and we trust this grant reflects our ongoing commitment not just to the Boone County Library, but the future of Harrison and the surrounding areas.”
