REDBANK PUBLIC LIBRARY 'DAY OF GIVING'

 

REDBANK VALLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY

"DAY OF GIVING"

Dear Patrons and Friends:

Our library provides people with the tools to solve problems, resources to meet needs, and services to help our community. Whether it is sending a fax, obtaining a passport, having copies made, attending a preschool early literacy program, utilizing the computers, having an exam proctored, teens socializing after school, adults coming together for book club, crafts and learning opportunities for all ages, homeschooling families finding no-cost materials to aid schooling, or just enjoying new books by favorite authors, the library has become a place of support, learning, and fun for all ages!

Our 2019 Challenge:

If each person in our service area donated at least $10,

our operating budget would be covered and we could focus more on meeting community needs. Imagine the world of opportunity that could open for all of us!

 

Community support is crucial to our library. Your donation helps us respond to community needs and remain a life-giving organization. Redbank Valley needs us now more than ever – will you help?

Join us in supporting our community by participating in the Redbank Valley Day of Giving on May 9th.  


Sincerely,
Jaylene Smith
Library Director
