Free Library On Wheels Awarded St. Joe Community Foundation Grant


The Bay County Public Library Foundation, Inc. recently received a grant from St. Joe Community Foundation. This grant will fund the purchase of additional book inventory for “FLOW,” the Foundations’ Free Library on Wheels. This is the second grant awarded by the St. Joe Community Foundation. In 2019, the Library Foundation received funding from St. Joe that made the purchase of the FLOW vehicle possible. FLOW travels throughout Bay County offering free books to the community, especially to children.

“We are thrilled to see “FLOW” out and about delivering FREE BOOKS to children,” said April Wilkes, Executive Director of the St. Joe Community Foundation, “putting books in the hands of children is one of the most important things we can do to enhance their vocabulary and verbal skills, fuel their imagination and open their minds to all the places they can go.”

The Bay County Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to promote literacy and provide cultural enrichment that enhances the Bay County Library System and strengthens the community. For more information, visit
