Joanie Jamison, director of the Colo Public Library, received a community grant for $1,000 from Linda Gibbs, Story County Community Foundation advisory board member, during a Nov. 5 ceremony in Ames. This funding will be used for a new coffee corner at the library.

SCCF received a total of 36 applications for 2015 community grants. Colo Public Library was one of 19 applicants selected for the awards. Funding for the community grants is provided by the State of Iowa’s County Endowment Fund Program and local donors. SCCF is the designated administrator for the fund.

The 2016 SCCF community grants cycle will begin early in 2016, when updated information for applicants will be available at www.storycountyfoundation.org. Applications will be due in late September.
