Battelle awards the Hurt Battelle Memorial Library a STEM Grant for 2023
The Hurt Battelle Memorial Library received an early Christmas present from Battelle. Battelle is awarding the library $20,000 to support the library's STEM programming in 2023. The Library Board and staff are grateful for Battelle's continued support. The library has now received this grant for 3 consecutive years. Last year, 2000 children participated in various STEM programs conducted by the library. This year's goal is to increase attendance by 10%.
