    William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library

    S. Wilson and Grace M. Pollock Foundation Rotunda

    The William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library capital campaign is a perfect fit for the S. Wilson and Grace Milliman Pollock Foundation because both are interested in children, education and life-long learning.

    The foundation, founded by S. Wilson Pollock, an engineer on the Manhattan Project and former Vice President of Engineering at AMP, and Grace Milliman Pollock, a former Broadway actress and ballerina, is dedicated to improving the lives of others in the community through charitable giving to many causes, including scholarships, libraries, educational institutions and community organizations.

    Board members and sisters Lauren Pollock Cacciamani, Courtney Pollock Gordon and Lindsay Pollock are very familiar with the Hummelstown Library. They grew up participating in programs at the library, located on South John Street. They checked books out regularly while attending story times in the children’s room in the basement. Lindsay fondly recalls reading the antics of The Jolly Postman, while Courtney and Lauren reminisce about reading The Little House and Katie Morag Delivers the Mail. All graduated from Lower Dauphin School District, and Courtney continues to be involved with literature as an elementary teacher. All are prolific readers, enjoy contemporary novels, and consider the library instrumental in making them aficionados of fiction.

    Grace Pollock serves as chairman of the Pollock foundation and in addition to her granddaughters, Dr. David McLane of Camp Hill is also a member of the board.

    The Pollock sisters are thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the library, where they spent so much time when they were growing up, and to their community of Hummelstown.
