World War I and America

The Loudonville Public Library and Cleo Redd Fisher Museum have been selected to receive a World War I and America $1,800 public programming and traveling exhibition grant in February 2018. This program is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, Wounded Warrior Project, and the United States World War One Centennial Commission.

Colleen Sandusky, Adult Programming Coordinator of the Loudonville Public Library shared, “We are honored to have been selected to receive the World War I and America grant. This grant gives Kenny Libben, Curator, Cleo Redd Fisher Museum and me the opportunity to offer an array of programming for the enrichment of all ages and to honor the centennial of the United States’ entry into World War I. We look forward to working with each other, local veterans’ organizations and scholars to make February 2018 a memorable month for the community.”

This competitive grant awarded 120 institutions in the United States funding for thematic programming between January 2017 and March 2018, the World War I centennial year. Of the 120 institutions, 80 sites received stipends of $1,200 for two free public programs, 40 sites received stipends of $1,800 for three free public programs and 50 sites were granted a traveling exhibition of documents, images, and interpretive texts prepared by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
