Hartford Public Library Receives Grant from Travelers Foundation

Hartford Public Library has received a $75,000 grant from the Travelers Foundation, the charitable arm of Travelers. The grant will support the following Library initiatives:

Hartford Public Library and Harford Public Schools Boundless partnership. Boundless is based on the core value of ensuring educational equity and greater access to opportunities and library services which will reduce academic and achievement gaps. 

Coding for Teens teaches computational thinking, prepares youth for further training in engineering and computer-related fields, and teaches programming as a real-world problem-solving activity. 

STEM Lab on the Go is a stand-alone transportable unit that includes the tools and materials needed to provide Next Generation Science Standard-aligned experiential learning opportunities in biological and applied sciences for middle school aged youth. 

Corporate support is critical for Hartford Public Library to serve the Hartford community with impactful initiatives that promote literacy and educational learning opportunities for students and their families. This support will create opportunities for teens to develop critical thinking, social and digital citizenship skills with the goal of collegereadiness and employment; engage youth who need a safe and stimulating environment and inspire them to explore science and technology as careers.
