TEXT: APL receives $115,000 grant. The City of Delavan has received a $115,000 grant from the Otto Bremer Trust to support the city’s project to expand and update Aram Public Library. Plans call for adding a modern 23,000 square foot, single-level addition to the existing 12,000 sf building. The Otto Bremer Trust is a private charitable organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Created in 1944 by business and community leader Otto Bremer, the trust is committed to supporting an enhanced quality of life for residents of Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Since its founding, OBT has invested more than one billion dollars in its region’s people, places, and opportunities. This month OBT announced awards of 170 grants totaling $14.7 million. Forty-three grants were made to Wisconsin organizations in an amount of $2,635,000. Of these, the Aram Public Library grant was the third largest.
