The Call to Action
In May 2017, the Library Foundation Board of Directors committed to raise $200,000 in new private donations to provide a one-time gift of e-books, audiobooks and databases to our libraries. These new funds will provide approximately 8,000 new digital resources and increase the online collection by 36%.
A new Community Advocacy Team(CAT), comprised of 22 committed citizens and Library Foundation Board members, was launched in November 2017 to keep the County Commissioners and the public informed about the value of our libraries to the community and the critical need to secure their future. We seek to create a partnership with the County and give a voice to the community to secure adequate and sustained public support for our libraries.
