FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Michael Flatt Foundation Makes $5,000 Donation to New Building Capital Campaign

The Michael Flatt Foundation, a long time supporter of the library,  donated $5,000 on January 7, 2020, to be applied to our New Building Capital Campaign.

“The Michael Flatt Foundation’s ongoing commitment and dedication to our community has moved the library forward,” expressed Jaema Berman, Library Director. Since 2015, The Michael Flatt Foundation has given a total of $16,500 for a fiber optic cable, programming and the New Building Fund. Although the library receives public funding, The Michael Flatt Foundation has continued to provide additional financial support.

The Addison Township Library is honored to join with The Michael Flatt Foundation which shows a passion for literacy and a commitment to spreading the message of how influential libraries can be in a  community. Through this donation, and others, we aim to build the first  library ever built in Addison Township.

This significant contribution will help us reach our fundraising goal.  Fundraising efforts however will continue until we’re able to meet the expected cost of the new building.  Details on the project status, building design, and our fundraising progress can be found on the website of the Addison Township Public Library Capital Campaign, www.letsbuildalibrary.org
