"The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books."

—Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935) American associate justice, US Supreme Court

sparta community foundation


 Sparta Carnegie Township Library is pleased to announce that the Sparta Community Foundation has funded a grant for $2100.00 to install a sidewalk north of the library next to the Masonic Temple.


The sidewalk will be used as an outdoor entrance to the recently renovated Carnegie Room. It will provide a handicap access, as well as provide an entrance to all users especially during the winter.


The Sparta Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation whose mission is to build and manage our community's permanent endowment and lead the community to strengthen the lives of its people.

Thank you, Sparta Community Foundation for helping us do that!
