Making libraries better for kids

          The Black Forest AARP Chapter 1100 president, Candace Lehmann, coordinated with The Pikes Peak Library District and AARP to justify a 2023 AARP Chapter Awareness Grant of $905.85. The Library District will use the money to provide six active motion stools with 12-inch high seats and three solid-top, open-front ADA compliant desks for wheel chair access. The adaptive furniture for children will be used by the three largest library locations in the local area. The check for the grant was presented by Candace Lehmann to Lance James, chief development officer for the Pikes Peak Library District, at the High Prairie Library in Falcon on Oct. 31.

An AARP Chapter Awareness Grant is provided annually through an AARP chapter that sees a definite need in the community for a special need. The process takes several months and requires extensive coordination between the local AARP Chapter and the receiving organization.

The Black Forest AARP Chapter strives to serve the community in multiple ways.  The chapter meets the second Wednesday of every month, except August, at noon at the Black Forest Lutheran Church. Chapter membership is open to all ages. Visit our chapter web page at https://www.aarpchapter1100blackforest.com, or contact Candace Lehmann at 314-330-0411 for more information. All are welcome!
