Libraries Connect Communities

 

There’s never been a library built in Addison Township.

 

Through a combination of the ongoing fundraising from the Friends of the Library, a generous donation of land in 2008, frugal spending, and a thoughtfully considered plan for a modest building to suit our community’s needs, we are today on the verge of building Addison Township’s first and likely only library building ever.

 

This new building will be an extension of the Addison Township Civic Complex and become a prominent feature of the community.

 

But we need the community’s help in order to complete this endeavor.  We need funds.  Through a combination of fundraising, our library’s fund-balance, and a planned construction loan, we are 75% of the way there.

 

That last 25% is roughly $300k.  Any funds raised beyond that amount will lower the total of the planned construction loan.  We can all pitch in to build a better future.

 

Visit our website at letsbuildalibrary.org to learn more about our project & to see how you can help.  Talk to your neighbors if you would; consider getting involved with the effort.

 

Historically, rural communities have consolidated their resources and “pitched in” to do things that benefit the community as a whole. We have a unique opportunity to do that again & I’m asking for you to join us and lend your support.

 

Thank you.
