Amos Patrick Meyer would have turned 5 years old on Sept. 16 of this year. In honor of his birthday, The Maggie and Amos Foundation donated a collection of board games to the Mount Morris Public Library, as well as $500 to be used for children’s programming and activities. Toddlers to adults will find a variety of games to enjoy that feature game play options including cooperative, strategy, adventure and more. Last year the Foundation donated over $1200 of materials to the Library’s children’s program, as well as a memorial canvas of Amos’s preschool picture and artwork he had made. 

The Mount Morris Public Library is grateful for the generosity of the Maggie and Amos Foundation. We will be hosting a Game Day for children and adults to introduce all our wonderful new games!
