For nearly a century, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has helped to support and strengthen the community we call home. That deep and lasting commitment continues as we work alongside the community to respond to needs, create opportunities and together build a vibrant future for all Flint residents. The Mott Foundation granted more than $15.5 million to support planning for and renovations to the Flint Public Library, an organization that’s essential to the community’s well-being. Residents provided input to the new floorplan, which creates even more space for children, families and residents of all ages to gather, work and learn.
C.S. Mott believed that every person exists in a kind of informal partnership with his community and that each individual’s quality of life is connected to the well-being of the community. The Flint Public Library and its work to build community and prepare residents for lifelong learning supports that vision. The renovated and reimagined library is now a beautiful, efficient, modern building with abundant meeting space, state-of-the-art technology, classrooms, digital learning spaces for all ages and an area dedicated to Flint’s history. It’s a place where residents can come together for book clubs, study groups, children’s reading groups, concerts and community events. The Mott Foundation was pleased to provide grant support for the new Flint Public Library, and we celebrate the resources it will bring to the community.
