2007 Library wishlist

Thanks to all your generosity, we are up to our eyeballs in crayons and other school supplies, for the time being. We will be sharing some of these precious resources with other local libraries in need.

At the moment, our greatest needs are:
(1) Your time - if you are going to be in the area, consider donating an afternoon of your time to help with various projects (painting, organizing our space, checking in books, etc.). Contact Maggie to plan a time: Maggiemk@aol.com

(2) Your money - while last year was one of our best so far in terms of meeting our financial needs, please remember that your monetary donations are the only thing that helps pay the bills and other library expenses. Our budget is modest, but still requires cash flow. We don't receive any government funds or money from other sources. We operate purely on private donations from our wonderful library friends.

(3) Your old clothes - we need gently used clothing for teens, children & infants.

And of course, we're always happy to have people come in to work with the kids doing crafts, reading or other age-appropriate projects. Come share your expertise!
