2023 Annual Appeal - Naming Rights Opportunities
In the spring of 2023, the Library will begin the second phase of our outdoor projects. We will complete the “learning experiences” on the walkway that connects a new patio and program pavilion adjacent to the teen area on the north lawn. We will also make significant improvements to Millie’s Garden outside the Youth Department. It is our goal to include a variety of enhancements to make the outdoor spaces more inviting, including outdoor musical instruments, seating, semi-permanent yard games, and more.
This year, there are several options for designating your Annual Appeal gift:
- Contact us about our naming opportunities. A plaque with your name will be installed on or near your selection. (See image to the right.)
- Join others in contributing to one of the outdoor items. Gifts of $100.00 or more will be recognized with your name on a plaque on or near the item.
- Donate to our General Fund and your gift will be used where it is most needed. With your permission, your name will appear in our monthly eNewsletter and on our website.
Contact Director Cindy Mack for more information on naming rights opportunities.
