Neilson's Hardware and Lumber kindly chose to donate $5.00 for every Christmas tree they sold to the New Library Building Fund. This week, they sold the last of their trees and sent the building fund a check for $415.00. And that amount was matched by our $5,000 Christmas Matching Fund, donated by Bev and Andy Mar.
We are coming along with that match (we are currently at almost $4,000 since December 1st), and we have a couple more weeks. This week and next, you can come to the library on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 2-3 pm and Wednesdays from 12-1 and buy a beautiful LIbrary Building Fund holiday donation card. You can give someone else the gift of a library and have both your and their name inscribed in our new Gift Donation Book. And your gift will be eligible for an IRS charitable donation deduction and for the December match that will double its value.
Think about a year-end gift to the library: either with a gift card to someone else, or just from yourself to yourself and to all the community who will be able to enjoy a new library here in Point Roberts. It is truly a gift that gives back to us all. If we give, we will receive. Happy December!
