Granted By Disney

On April 17, Walt Disney World visited the Orange County Library System’s Winter Garden Branch to award OCLS with a $100,000 Disney Grant. Disney brought its Toy Story themed tailgate party to the library to announce the good news. The funds will be used to work with two local nonprofit organizations, ArtReach Orlando and Hero Spark, to enhance programming offered during the library’s annual Summer Reading Program.
