“The bank has always been a wonderful supporter of the library over the years,” says Blake, who accepted the check on behalf of the Friends of the Library who have been raising funds to construct the shelves. “We deeply appreciate their ongoing commitment to the library, its programs and the residents of this community.”
“At Biddeford Savings we believe that personal and financial prosperity begins with education and libraries are the basic foundation for education in our communities,” notes Charles Petersen, president and CEO of Biddeford Savings. “When we heard that the Waterboro Library needed support to build shelves for a growing number of books used for home schooling and parenting, we were pleased to offer support. We encourage others in the community to step forward to help with this important initiative.”
