Challenge Update

Late last year, The Friends of the Library issued a challenge to help fund the replacement of the multimedia equipment in the Library’s meeting room. This nearly-ten-year-old-equipment allows the library to do so many things that community members enjoy: showing movies, sharing slides from adventures all over the world, training on everything from invasive plant species to star gazing, presentations from authors, and lots more.

The cost for the new technology and its installation is estimated at $27,000. This purchase just isn’t possible with the library’s current operating budget.

The Friends’ Challenge is this: For every dollar donated, the Friends will match that dollar, up to $5000. Many of you have answered the call and generously donated towards our goal. But we aren’t there yet. If you would like to support our local library and have your contribution doubled through the Friends of the Library match, you can drop it off at the Friends of the Library Bookstore or mail it to the Bookstore at 115 Highlands Rd.

If youʼve ever attended events in the libraryʼs meeting room, you know how important the multimedia equipment is. Please help us meet this challenge – consider giving your contribution today.
