It was a busy 2013 at the Tolland Public Library, thanks in part to the Library Foundation. 

In all Tolland Public Library Foundation grants totaled $9,835 for the year. 

"The grants brought more young people into the library, helped patrons 'Lighten Up @ at the Library,' and enhanced services beyond what the town budget provides," Library officials said in a news release.

The funds also enabled the library to host award-winning authors, conduct informative sessions on paying for college, host its second poetry slam and provide residents with "useful databases," including Ancestry.com, Consumer Reports and a new auto repair database, officials said.

For more information on the foundation, call the library at 860-871-3620, “like” it on Facebook, follow its blog at Tolland Patch or visit its website at tollandpubliclibraryfoundation.org. 

The foundation accepts tax-deductible donations. Checks can be made out to the Tolland Public Library Foundation and sent to Tolland Public Library Foundation, 21 Tolland Green, Tolland, CT 06084.
