Peabody library gets grant for shades

A grant of $750 from Peabody Community Foundation Endowment Fund provided money to replace plastic roller blinds in the Ann Potter room at Peabody Township Library with solar screen shades.

“The new shades allow for better lighting, especially at times when the sun is at a low angle,” said librarian Rodger Charles. “The shades allow for more efficient use of the room at all times of the year and also are very attractive.”

The Ann Potter room is being used more than ever before, Charles said. The new shades keep the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

“This progress would not be possible without assistance from groups like the Peabody Community Foundation,” he said.

The foundation is an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation.
