From the Library Matching Fundraising committee
If you had nothing to do last week, you weren’t paying attention! April 9-14 was a busy week for library fundraising, bringing in over $1,000 for the library building fund.
There was bingo at American Legion #287 Glen Hill Post with Jim See, where the Legion donated the entire receipts allowable by law to the Public Library Building Fund. For fitness buffs, Kate Rehmus did 90 minutes of Zumba on Saturday with receipts going to the Library. Shopping your game? The Amish Warehouse donated 15 percent of all furniture sales and 5 percent of gift sales to the Library.
If you missed this (and many did), don’t despair—there’s more fun ahead. The library will have a table at Community Night, April 19 (today) from 6-8 p.m., featuring a bake sale and other items. Big Boy’s All You Can Eat Taco Bar is scheduled for April 26, 5-8 p.m. Tickets are available at Big Boy and your public library. We have kick-boxing in the works, Zumba, Karaoke, Book Sales and so much more. On-going fundraisers include Take-Two Game Shop ($1 donated for every $20 spent) Alpha Omega Coffee’s Pound of Ground, license plates and frames available at the library and City Hall and quality T-shirts for $5, also at the library. Each dollar donated brings us that much closer to our goal of a bigger library.
It is wonderful to see this community rallying around the library as it has. By investing in our Public Library, we are investing in the future. Many businesses and individuals have made the commitment to partner with us in attaining this goal. Our major concern with fundraisers has been getting the word out to the public. The Post has been a major player in public awareness. Thanks to them and to each of you for making the new library a very real possibility. Keep watching the Post for new fundraisers and updates!
