Catching Up, Half-Year Report, 2015

The APB says you all have donor fatigue.  I hope that is not the case because we need more donations.  Take your time, a little bit, anyway.

At present, we are up to $444,000, which includes $1,000 or so from the current quilt show at The Blue Heron.  The exhibit will go on until the end of July, and perhaps there will be more for the library at that point; if we sell any, there will be.  The current estimation of our total need is $538,000, so we're short by a tad less than $100,000.  It is doable, one way or another, with the wind at our backs and the support of the community, which we surely have had.

We have two significant donation requests still out.  You will be informed about their outcome as soon as they have one.  And then we will be working on Plan C if it is necessary.  Which we hope it won't be.

Thanks for all your support in the past.  It is a pleasure to work with people who really care about libraries and who demonstrate that caring through time and money, both.
