MADISON – The staff and children at Primrose School of Madison recently showed their appreciation for the services at Madison Public Library.

Primrose School at 124 Plaza Blvd. is the library’s next-door neighbor. Nine students, their teachers and school owner Myra McCrary walked over to deliver their gift on June 27.

Primrose donated $1,026.50. “The very generous gift from Primrose School will be used for upgrades to our Children’s Garden,” branch manager Sarah Sledge said. “Primrose is very active in assisting with the garden’s maintenance.”

Two of Primrose School’s younger age groups regularly water plants and pull weeds in the garden. “Their efforts keep the garden looking its best during summer months when library traffic is at its highest throughout the year,” Sledge said.

During their visit, Primrose students took time in the Children’s Garden to explore the planted vegetables, learn about flower buds and talk about the library.

“The library is very fortunate to have Primrose as our neighbors,” Sledge said. “Madison community spirit is alive and well in Midtown, allowing our organizations to share a mutual friendship based on our common missions towards the education of youth.”

“We are a community dedicated to providing opportunities to all ages,” Sledge said.

Along with its material value, Primrose’s donation was a symbolic gesture promoting the library’s mission. “Troy Ponder and Myra McCrary at Primrose School recognize the importance of developing a child’s literacy from the very beginning of the educational process,” Sledge said.

Ponder and McCrary also see the library as “a key component towards acquiring a love for reading and of lifelong learning,” Sledge said. “Their generosity to the library symbolizes their commitment to improving the opportunities that all children throughout Madison County gain when they walk in our doors.”

Every gift to the library, whether large or small, makes a positive impact on the materials, programs and services the library can provide its users. “Madison Library is a tremendous resource because of our great community and the support they give us,” Sledge said.
