Annual Appeal—Update


February has historically been celebrated as “Library Lovers Month.” This year will be no exception. We are planning a number of special events to let you know how much we appreciate you as a resident of the township and as a library customer.

You have shown us how much you appreciate the library just by your presence here. Your gifts also reveal your love for the library.  Many of you have recently shown your support by giving to the 2014 Annual Appeal.  You proved that we could not only meet our goal of $20,000 but surpass it. We are at the $23,000 mark! Thank you.

I believe it is possible to continue the challenge and set a second goal of $30,000! Please help us reach that mark. All proceeds go back into making this a better library for all of the residents in the township.

If you’ve given, encourage your neighbors, friends, and family members to do the same. If you have not yet given, please consider making a donation today. The appeal will continue through September 2015.

Giving is easy. You can give online, come into the library, or mail a donation in. Our Annual Appeal suggested categories for giving are:

Library Leader $1,000 - $5,000

Library Lover $500 - $999

Library Supporter $100 - $499

Library Enthusiast $25 - $99

Other $_____________

You can double your gift through your company’s matching gift program.

Let’s get to $30,000!
