The privately run, Grover Presidential Scholar's Library is housed inside of The Inn of the Patriots and is operated as an adjunct facility of the Presidential Service Center.
The public portion of the libraries is part of the Little Library World System facility certified number #27245 and located via the front of the premises, open 24- hours per day, seven days per week. We carry a wide selection of children's books, adult novels, and magazines. We are often asked if we accept donations of boxes of books and, yes, we do from homes, estates, and old libraries. Please also take note of our free, 24-hour food bank open with no questions.
A single annual research grant is awarded for any form of book, television, or film work closely associated with colonial studies, Presidential research, or the first family. High priority and award are offered to Presidential service-related work. But any idea is welcomed.
The PSC Foundation will consider grant requests from for-profit and nonprofit businesses and organizations. In some cases, such may be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt public charities under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1), (2), (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in the United States and Puerto Rico. Also, the Foundation will consider requests for funding from governmental organizations located in the United States, where the purpose of the grant is to support charitable, educational, scientific, or literary use. Thus, eligible grantees may include public elementary and secondary schools, as well as public colleges and universities, public libraries, and public hospitals. Successful requests will fall within both the current eligibility guidelines and funding priority areas established by the Foundation. The Foundation has established grantmaking partnerships with qualified intermediary partners to manage donations to organizations chartered on other continents.
Organizations may only submit one request a year for funding. The Foundation's review committees meet annually.
U.S., Puerto Rico, and Europe letters of inquiry must be submitted online by email. Paper forms will not be evaluated.
The Foundation will not consider requests for:

By now, you may have thought we had forgotten a mission of ours, but we did not. We have been back in NJ a couple of weeks now and took a ride to Grover Cleveland's birthplace in Caldwell, NJ, yesterday to present your gift of the Presidential Medallion to the museum. We were one day short of his birthday, but bad weather was predicted for today, so we enjoyed a beautiful, sunny ride up to tour the house.
We presented the medallion to Sharon Farrell, the longtime caretaker and acting curator of the museum. She was very grateful and happy to receive the medallion. They are hosting a tea today to celebrate the President's birthday. She also told us that a ceremony would be held today at his gravesite in Princeton.
Joe and I thank you again for being part of our journey south this year and providing such a welcoming, warm environment. With a turn in the weather for the worse since we have been back in NJ, we joke that we may have to extend our trip to two months next year.
We wish you and your family all the best and hope life in Grover is going well.
Bob LaBate and Joe Stern
