SOUTH AMBOY — On Oct. 17, The Amboy Foundation presented a $3,000 check to the Dowdell Library Foundation to support the Sadie Pope Dowdell Public Library of South Amboy. The Amboy Foundation’s contribution will be used to acquire a digital scanner, video recorder and other equipment to help preserve South Amboy’s history.
The check was presented by Joseph Mullane, vice president of Amboy Bank, and Mariola Jones, manager of the bank’s South Amboy branch.
Mimi Pichey, president of the Dowdell Library Foundation, noted, “The Amboy Foundation’s generous gift will help South Amboy to celebrate the Library’s 100th anniversary in 2014 by taking additional steps to preserve the community’s history. We are very grateful to Amboy Bank and its foundation for their support.”
“If South Amboy residents have materials – photos, documents or other memorabilia – that share aspects of the city’s history in any era, they are welcome to bring them to the library. They will be scanned, digitized and returned to their owners. The images will then be cataloged and made available on the library’s history web page.”
The Dowdell Library Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information, visit www.DowdellFoundation.org or call (732)316-1078.
