DAR awards $10,000 education grant to Way Public Library

DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution announced it will donate $10,000 to the Way Public Library in Perrysburg for the publication of “Perrysburg Village Voices: Hometown Stories of the Past.”

Funding was made possible through the sponsorship of the Fort Industry Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, in Toledo.

The stories were compiled from recorded interviews of local residents which Richard Baranowski, local history librarian of the Way Library, has conducted over 12 years as part of the library's Front Porch Oral History Project.

Mr. Baranowski said “the library is thrilled to be receiving” the donation.

The Daughters of the American Revolution grants program was started in 2010. Funding is awarded to support projects in communities which promote the organization’s mission areas of historic preservation, education and patriotism.
