The Foundation will help Timber Ridge transition its Media Center to a 21st Century Learning Commons, starting in May 2014. A lot of great work has already been done to prepare Timber Ridge for this transition, including the removal of bookshelves that were too high for elementary students, the donation of dated books that were not checked out, and extensive electrical work.
