And you can, too
The Cedar Springs Public Library has a contest going on to see what grade levels can raise the most money for a new library. It’s called “Who Wants a Bigger Library?” fund drive. The answer to that question seems to be Emily Brown.
According to Library Director Donna Clark, Emily took it upon herself to make brownies, cookies and lemonade, and to launch her own fundraiser to help the library. The $46 she raised went into the box for the 4-6th graders. Thanks to Emily, the 4-6th graders have just shot way past all other age groups.
If Emily can do it, so can the rest us! The library just has until the end of the year to raise the rest of the money towards a $50,000 matching grant. Fundraisers and donations have currently netted about $32,000. But there is another fundraising opportunity on the horizon. There is a contest between the City of Cedar Springs and Solon Township to see who can contribute the most money to a new library. And remember, your donation gets matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!
