Doing It Now: Increasing Size and Quality

On 11/1/22 our board of directors met, and after agreement with the city, reached a consensus to continue fund raising to maximize program space for the new library. Our deadline remains 12/31/22.

This is our best chance to impact the size and quality of the new library. Can you help us with an additional gift or pledge (payable over 2 years) so we can add community rooms for all age groups?

Library programs and community meetings can be enhanced if we can raise enough funds to expand the size of the new Library. Doing it now will save money. Doing it now will reduce the construction inconvenience for the Rose Lane community. Doing it now means we can serve more people starting in 2025.

Can you help us increase the funds available to build the new library?

Can you do it now in either cash or a pledge?
