The Bellingham Herald has published an article about our fundraising work for the library here in Point Roberts. Nice to hear from the outer world.
My plan today was to bring to the Friends of the Library's attention to the fact that we have only 4 remaining days for the Matching Holiday Fund. Most of it has been matched by 18 Good Friends members, but there is yet $3,000 that will either be matched to get us a total of $6,000, or will go away into the void that is unmatched funds. A truly dismal outcome, that. So, it's the end of the year and you'll get an IRS deduction. And you will be getting a new library pretty soon. And you will feel all warm and fuzzy in your generosity. And you certainly will have all the thanks available from the FOPRL fundraising people!
Checks to FOPRL, to the library on Tuesday when it's open; to the mail, otherwise: FOPRL, PO Box 970, P.R., 98281. Happy New Year. Tomorrow, I'll write about Foundations and their ways.
