FY 2016 FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN GOING STRONG

The library's FY 2016 fundraising campaign just passed the 50% mark.  In FY 2015 the library received over $9,000 total in donations and this year we have set our goal at $12,000.  The funds will be used to support library collections, programs, technology, and the Local History Room.  Donation forms are available in both libraries.  Information about the fundraising campaign has been posted on the library's Facebook page.
