It's been 11 days since we announced the beginning of the new $20,000 matching gift and thus far we have $6,000 in new funds which will be matched. About 50 more days to find the next $14,000, so I would remind you that if you think you can contribute any amount, this would be a very good time to do it.
There's a show at the Blue Heron this month (fiber art by Joyce Wensley) which includes a very witty piece that Joyce has put on silent auction to benefit the the Library Building Fund campaign. The final price paid by whoever wins that auction will also be included in the matching campaign, so think about joining that, as well.
And there's an outdoor movie night at Brewster's this Saturday night. And the Friends of the P.R. Library is doing a Big Book Sale in front of the library this Saturday (10 to one) which will also benefit the building fund and involve the matching funds. And, finally, we'll be there at the Saturday Market with donation cards and book marks and Point Roberts postcards and knit goods and excellent conversation/discussion about the new library. A sunny day, we expect, beaming upon us all and our works!
