The SAILS Library Network has been awarded a Harvard Pilgrim Community  Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant. "The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation greatly appreciates the work that you do in our communities and is proud to award you this grant."  The $500 grant from the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation has gone towards the purchase of downloadable audiobooks. To commemorate those Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, Harvard Pilgrim and its Foundation created the Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant program. This program enables employees from Harvard Pilgrim, Health Plans Inc. (our affiliate) and Dell Services (our IT partner) to award an annual $500 grant, completely funded by the Foundation, to the local charity of his or her choice. Since the program began in 2002, these employees have directed almost $3 million to hundreds of organizations throughout our health plan service area – comprised of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

SAILS was nominated for the award by a Middleborough resident who is an avid user of the network’s downloadable audiobook collection. SAILS is happy to accept donations for the Overdrive downloadable book collection. For those willing to donate funds, titles purchased with the money can have a personalized bookplate with your name and/or organization's name. The bookplate will appear in the Overdrive catalog and link to all of the other titles sponsored by the donor.
