The community has received significant donations for the new library project. Two members of the FOPRL Library Fundraising Committee have recently demonstrated not only their belief in the creation of a new library but also their willingness to make a tangible commitment to that belief. Not only 'talking the talk,' they are 'walking the walk.' The FOPRL has recently received two donations of $5,000 each. The first was from Jean Barrington and Curt Bush, and the second from Dorothy and Darrel Sutton. That raises our current total donations to $14,000, which is pretty great for this early in our fund-raising career.
We look forward to finding ways to involve every member of our community in this gathering together of enough funds to begin this renovation project soon. I'm kind of looking forward to sitting in the New library patio next summer, but I'll probably have to have a little more patience. In any case, the community should know that all the members of the Friends' Fundraising Committee are thinking about ways to make this happen and acting upon those thoughts. We hope you are thinking about acting, too.
