Friends of the Library Donate $3,035 to Building Fund

On April 29, the Friends of the Library approved a budget for 2023 that includes all the normal requests as well as a markedly increased programming budget. So expect more art events this fall! The Friends also donated their surplus funds to the Library’s capital campaign, bringing the total amount in our combined building funds to $161,212.42!

Donations to our capital campaign are especially important and valued right now. The Trustees of the Library have taken a significant step toward building renovation by engaging the services of a building specialist who will be working with us over the summer to prepare a document called a Library Building Program. June and July will see a lot of surveying, focus groups, public forums, and invitations for input from the community to determine the next steps for 290 Main Street. Stay tuned!
