Dr. Keys graduated Oc- tober 17 of this year from Palmer College of Chiro- practic in Davenport, where she met David.

Norwalk Easter Public Library Receives Grant Norwalk Easter Public Library has received a $1,448 grant from Warren County Philanthropic Partnership. Twenty-one applications were received and nine orga- nizations across Warren County 'shared in the funding allocations. Grant funds will help to improve library services and access for patrons. The overall goal is to add additional shelving space and upgrade wireless internet access for patrons. This project has two different areas of focus. The first area is to add additional shelving to our DVD/ Blu-ray and audiobook collections. We will use currently owned metal to create the additional space. We have a fairly significant population of users that enjoy listen- ing to audiobooks while working, driving, or because of visual impairments; we also have a significant popu- lation that enjoys checking out the latest movies or TV series from the library. The second goal of the project will be to upgrade our wireless internet access points. It is our goal to create a better environment for our pa- trons to access the internet or other digital resources via their laptops or other personal electronic devices when visiting the Norwalk Easter Public Library. "We're extremely excited about being able to offer improved services and collections," stated Library Di- rector, Holly Sealine when notified of the award. Direc- tor Sealine went on to mention, "We could not have done this project at this time without the help of Warren County Philanthropic Partnership." The Warren County Philanthropic partnership was organized to promote and enhance community-based philanthropy in Warren County. The Warren County Philanthropic Partnership recently received a state award to facilitate endowment building and grant mak- ing. The contribution to the foundation was made pos- sible by the Iowa General Assembly. In 2004 the Iowa legislature passed several bills to encourage foundation building and community-based philanthropy. Among these measures was H.F. 2032 which provided that non- gambling counties, initiating a county-wide community foundation would be eligible to receive one half of one percent of the state's gross gambling tax receipts.
