Thanks for your support!

The library is on target with its fund-raising efforts this year, but still has a long way to go.
A goal was set to raise $43,000 for books and library programs this fiscal year, which ends in June 2012. As of November 2011, already more than $21,000, or 49 percent, of the goal had been raised. Thank you, thank you, to all who have supported the library in this way and to those who are continuing to support the library.

Moving toward our goal comes as good news as we wrap up our holiday donation campaign, “Books … gifts you can open again and again.” (Our donation trees will remain up until the second week of January – so you still have time to purchase books for the library this season.)

It is interesting to hear how and why people have made donations over the last few weeks. Here are some examples:

  • A woman donated children’s books in memory of her mother who was a teacher
  • Grandparents donated children’s books in honor of their grandchildren
  • Children have donated books in honor of their parents and grandparents
  • A patron has donated funds to replace perennially favorite children’s titles
  • A family donated a book in honor of their child’s teacher
  • A choir director donated a book in honor of a beloved priest
  • A pet salon donated books in memory of favorite pets
  • An individual donated a book in memory of her dog
  • A family donated a book in honor of library staff
  • A patron donated a book in memory of a long-time neighbor
  • A family donated a book in honor of their equine vet
  • A family used the library’s Wowbrary link to do their shopping on

 Thanks again!
