The Tammy Douglas Daybell Foundation donates to Art City Elementary in Nebo School District.

Principal Lisa Muirbrook said, “With the help of this donation, the lobby at Art City Elementary has been transformed into an inviting and fun place to sit with friends, read books and work on class assignments or projects. There is a bookshelf with books available for students to take a book or leave a book. There can never be enough books!  We believe that having a comfortable and relaxing space helps students learn to love reading.  Like our sign says that is posted by our books, ‘Reading is dreaming with your eyes open!’”  

The Tammy Douglas Daybell Foundation was formed in 2020.  As a school librarian, Tammy was a lover of the written word and an advocate for children's literacy.  The foundation strives to honor Tammy's legacy by assisting libraries and supporting literacy programs in the Utah and Idaho area.  The Tammy Douglas Daybell Foundation is pleased to support Nebo School District, and its students with our donation and hopes that Art City Elementary students will enjoy the adventure of reading in their new reading area! 

The Tammy Douglas Daybell Foundation encourages you to donate to the Foundation at one of the following sites: You can sign up for recurring donations if you would like to donate on a monthly basis. Every dollar helps!

Checks may be made payable to Tammy Douglas Daybell Foundation and mailed to PO BOX 50902, Provo, Utah, 84605 We ask that you consider setting up a Facebook fundraiser for the Foundation, and that you select the Foundation as your AmazonSmile non profit organization. Amazon will donate a portion of your shopping to the Foundation at no cost to you!

The Foundation’s Mission is to give children the opportunity to learn to love the written word. Tammy loved books, children, and was a school librarian at the time of her death.

Donations will be utilized to give books to children that they may keep for themselves, assist libraries with various programs and support literacy programs across the country. We are excited to begin fund-raising events, and asking for volunteers. Programs are being developed that will allow you to make a difference in your community, wherever that may be. Volunteer opportunities will be announced in the near future, please watch our website for updates.

Congratulations to Adrienne Everitt for answering this week’s “Where are we Wednesday?” challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
