Foundation's Generous Gift Brings New Life to Library

With a $350,000 grant, The Stanley and Elaine Ball Charitable Foundation has made it possible for the Taneyhills Library to renovate the children's area and create a technology conference room that would have otherwise been impossible for the all-volunteer library to build. The hope is that the new features will draw new users to the library and make the library a central, long-lasting resource for the community. The gift is in keeping with one of the key missions of the Foundation, which was to address children's literacy.

The Taneyhills Library in Branson, Missouri is making an investment in the future, using a bighearted grant from The Stanley and Elaine Ball Charitable Foundation that will make the library a popular center for young families and children, according to The (Branson, MO) Tri Lakes News, in "Branson library receives $350,000 grant for renovation, tech upgrades."

The gift will also fund the creation of a state-of-the-art technology conference room that will feature laptops, charging stations, a smart board, a big screen TV and conference phones.

The library has a 20-by-30-foot area that will be converted into the technology room, which will provide a facility for use by home-schoolers, business seminars, training sessions, and discussion groups. Olson said that hopefully it will also be a draw to the library.

Olson said the remodel wouldn't have been made possible without the generosity of the Stanley and Elaine Ball Charitable Foundation. It was the belief and passion for what these upgrades could do for the library that impressed the foundation committee in its decision to grant the money. The library hopes that this gift will help put the library "back on the map," increase visibility, and up use of the library.

Stanley Ball, who was once mayor of Branson, was a generous person, as in his estate planning, he left enough to take care of his family-then left the rest to do wonderful things like this for the communities that were so good to him.
