Friends of Addison Township Public Library Make $10,000 Donation to New Building Capital Campaign

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,
