Looking for Grant Writers in Kitsap? Me Too!

I help all kinds of nonprofits all over the county with every aspect of the nonprofit life cycle, from conception and birth to sustainability, management and leadership, boards and a treasure trove of research resources, through the library’s role as a Funding Information Network Partner of the Foundation Center of New York.

Experiencing the Unpredictable through STEM

They also help to make the Library's youth STEM programs more awesome!

I love visiting each classroom and engaging with the students, they always have the best questions.  Oftentimes students want to know if we have a particular book, or books about a certain subject.  The answer?  We do, at least 99% anyway.  We have all kinds of books, as wide, weird, and wonderful as only the human brain can imagine.  Here is just a small sample of some of the more unique titles in our collection:

Pride! You belong at your library

It’s Pride Month! June is the month in which Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month is celebrated in remembrance of the 1969 Stonewall riots that took place in Manhattan. The riot that began with a police raid on the Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969 is often cited as the beginning of the gay rights movement. More information and resources can be found at the Library of Congress Pride month webpage.
