Frankfort Free Library Receives Community Foundation Grant
UTICA, NY – The Frankfort Free Library and The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties have recently partnered to make an impact in the community by renovating the Frankfort Free Library, making it more accessible for all patrons.
The $50,000 investment from The Community Foundation will help to renovate the entryway into the building and install a lift which will make the lower level accessible to all patrons. The expanded accessibility will allow the library to provide even more public programming.
According to Edith Buffalohead, Board of Trustees President, the library has not had any major renovations since 1976 and the building sorely needs this upgrade. “We are very thankful for the support provided by The Community Foundation,” said Buffalohead. “The improvements to the library will enable us to better meet our mission to enrich lives, build community and foster success by bringing people, information and ideas together.”
“This investment will not only allow the Frankfort Free Library to better address the renovation needs of the building, but will in turn lead to the library’s growth,” added Morgan Mielnicki, community investment coordinator at The Community Foundation. “These improvements will enable the organization to offer more programming and help to increase overall patron visits.”

Since 1952, The Community Foundation has invested more than $75 million in Oneida and Herkimer counties. The Community Foundation partners with various local organizations to make impactful investments in core areas of need, including economic development, education, health, and arts and culture.
