Gift supports children’s literature programs for the Springfield Library

SPRINGFIELD — Elementary school children in Springfield will benefit from a legacy donation made to the Springfield Public Library Foundation to honor the late Springfield community member Kate Wallace. The sizable gift of $100,000 will support children’s library materials for years to come. 

The Kate Wallace Endowment Fund, established by Kate’s husband, Dennis Shine, will be a permanent fund to support book materials, digital resources, and online resources for elementary school children and to provide educational materials to English and Spanish speaking children and families. The gift of $100,000 was announced this week . . .
