The Wabasso Public Library receives a $5,000 Monsanto Fund Grant for the installation of a vertical platform lift.
Employees from the three Monsanto facilities in Redwood Falls recommended the Wabasso Public Library to receive a $5,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund’s 2016 site grant initiative. Funds from the grant will be used to install a vertical platform lift which will provide handicap accessibility at the library.
“The library has a ramp but replacing it will make access easier for individuals with health issues, wheelchairs and walkers to use the entire library” said Marilyn Daub, Library Director. The Library, along with the Monsanto Fund grant, has raised $29,000 toward the $60,000 goal for the lift project.
“A library should be accessible to all and installing a lift will help make that possible,” said Dana Jacobs, Site Lead at Monsanto Soybean Production. “We’re happy to support the Wabasso Public Library with this Monsanto Fund grant.”
This year, the Monsanto Fund awarded more than $1.4 million to nonprofit organizations through its site grant initiative to help address essential needs in rural communities. Nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $7.5 million through this program over the last five years.
The Monsanto facilities in Redwood Falls consist of Research, Pre-Foundation and Production. The three sites serve a key role in the development, production and distribution of soybean seed for farmers in the Northern Midwest States.
The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the communities where farmers and Monsanto Company employees live and work. Visit the Monsanto Fund at www.monsantofund.org.

Want to have the entire works of William Shakespeare or Mark Twain in one file, and completly free?
One of the biggest benefits of eBooks is that they are convenient. One file can contain 5 thousand or 500 thousand words. Instead of downloading 50 seperate books from one author, you can get the most of their publications by clicking on a download button just once.
Our favorite source for free eBooks, Project Guttenburg, has several files that include complete electronic publications of selected classic authors.
