Last evening at their annual meeting, representatives of the Friends of the Addison Township Public Library presented to Library Director Jaeama Berman and Library Board of Trustees President James Baldiga a check for $10,000 to be applied to our New Building Capital Campaign.

Char Sutherby, President of the Friends stated, “I believe that our library is the heart of the community, bringing all kinds of people together with wide ranging objectives be it educational, health or job related.” Jaema Berman, Library Director expressed that “the Friends understand the importance of a library, with new expanded resources, has the ability to provide programming that cultivates independent learning and builds a renewed sense of pride in our community.”

Berman and Baldiga expressed deep appreciation for the Friends’ passion for reading, love for their community and support for a new library.  Since 2011, the Friends have donated $30,300 for programming and the New Building Fund. The Friends continue to be a positive force for community growth and well being 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

Phase I Tree Clearing Has Commenced

It’s starting to look like a Library…

The wood and wood chips have been left on-site for pickup by residents.  If you’re interested in some of the wood, please make sure to check the schedule for wood pickup and complete a liability release form, available at the library.

#ATPL

Everyone is welcome to help us document the progress.

Look on the telephone pole on the North East corner of the lot for this small bracket.  Just place your phone on the block of wood, take a picture, and share it on social media with the hashtag #ATPL.

 

Shelving Donation from Jenison Library

Volunteers from the Addison Township Library recently traveled to Jenison MI to claim some donated shelving from the Georgetown Township Public Library located in Jenison MI.  Georgetown Library recently completed the construction of their new library and this shelving was redundant.

Our volunteers were greeted with help and support from several local Boy Scout Troops who were contacted ahead of time by our local volunteers.  They were asked for assistance disassembling the shelving and loading it into the rental truck.  The Scouts earned service time.  Pizza and pop was served to all the volunteers.

All the helping hands made quick work of the disassembly and loading.  In less than 4 hours several hundred feet of 7 foot, 5 foot, and 4 foot tall double shelving units were disassembled and loaded into the truck for travel back to Addison Township for storage at “Stor Your Stuf” in Lakeville.   Additionally, there was also some media shelving, rolling media cabinets and maps storage file cabinets donated to our Library.  Volunteers on this end helped unload the truck and load the shelving into the storage unit.
