Only two weeks remain for the Gibsons & District Library Foundation’s Giving Tree Fundraiser, so what better time to take the show on the road? Thursday, May 23 Foundation members will be at Sunnycrest Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the Giving Tree display, eager to accept donations and talk all things Foundation.
The Library Founda-tion’s first fundraising initiative in almost a decade is rapidly coming to a close. The May 31 deadline is right around the corner and there’s still considerable effort required. To date over $4,500 has been raised but the final push is on to achieve the goal of $6,500.
The long overdue state-of-the-art multimedia presentation system needed at the Gibsons & District Public Library is within reach. Achieving the goal requires the support of as many patrons of the library as possible. The new system will not only support ongoing digital literacy programs, it will also enhance the library’s ability to provide the best possible presentations, readings and audience participation experiences for its patrons of all ages.
Donations can be made by cash or cheque at the library’s circulation desk. To donate online go to www.gibsonslibraryfoundation.ca which will redirect you to the donation webpage at CanadaHelps.org.
A big thank you to all who have so generously donated already. No donation is too small, but more importantly, none is too large!
If you have any questions email the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask a member of the library staff.
