Library building fund growing

Woman’s Life Cedar Springs Chapter 841 recently made a contribution toward the new Library Building Fund with proceeds from the recent quilt show.

Fundraising efforts are stepping up and excitement is growing as the Cedar Springs Public Library recently received their new plans for a new library building and a site plan from their newly-hired architect, Robert Andrus of Andrus Architecture.

The Library’s Building Fund has grown to around $600,000, and the Community Building Development Team has offered $100,000 to pay for the development of the site, on the northwest corner of Main and Maple Streets, near Cedar Creek.

Woman’s Life Cedar Springs Chapter 841 Vice-President Dena Wever presented Friends President Louise King, Library Board President Bob Ellick, and Secretary Tony Owen a check for $1,133 at the Library’s Booth at Community Night, April 16. The Friends 3rd Annual Quilt Show/Fundraiser partnered with Woman’s Life to raise a total of $2,500, all for the new library facility to be built in Cedar Springs in the near future.

Woman’s Life Headquarters offered to match up to $500 if members of their Cedar Springs Chapter 841 could raise the first $500. Almost half of the day’s profits were realized from the efforts of Chairperson Dena Wever and others of her Chapter who made gift baskets for a Silent Auction the day of the Quilt Show. The Silent Auction was a real success, bringing in $633, plus the $500 match.

If you would like to get involved with Friends of the Library or help with fundraising, find the Friends on facebook or attend a meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Library on the 4th Tuesday of most months. Websites for the Library and the Community Building Development Team are

cedarspringslibrary.org and CSCommunityCenter.org.

All donations are tax deductible and made out to the Cedar Springs Public Library, 43 W. Cherry Street, 49319.
