A Public — Private Funding Partnership
In November 2018, voters approved a $1.5 million bond for the new library. And in February 2019, the Select Board unanimously approved issuance of that bond. The remaining approximately $2 million to match is now being raised through private donations.
How Can You Help?
In addition to making a donation, you can help us by telling your family and friends to donate as well. And in your ongoing conversations, be sure to advocate for the plan. It all goes a long way toward building enthusiasm among private donors and gets us to our fundraising goal faster.
