The End of the Fiscal YearBy admin on July 12th, 2011
Not only does summer mean it’s time for the Summer Reading Program, family concerts with Terry-a-la Berry, Professor Jeremy Yudkin’s Tanglewood lecture series and our annual book sale but it’s also the end of the library’s fiscal year.
The 2011 Annual Appeal exceeded $90,000 thanks to your donations and contributions. Our Annual Appeal is the foundation of our annual fundraising effort. Every dollar raised goes towards providing library services to the community. Stay tuned for more details on our 2012 Annual Appeal kick-off.
There are many ways the community supports the Lenox Library besides the Annual Appeal. We received over $19,000 in memorial and honor donations this year. Honor and memorial gifts are a meaningful way to acknowledge those that are important to us while also supporting the library.
We also received several grants including community grants from the Legacy Banks Foundation and Berkshire Bank to fund our children’s summer programming.
In 2011, the library raised over $45,000 through special events such as the Golf Challenge, our annual book sale and our first Annual Scrabble Rouser. Thank you to all the sponsors and businesses who donated goods and services and to all our volunteers for their donation of time.
Your continued generosity and support is what keeps the Lenox Library a vibrant space, dedicated to providing equal access of information to the community. Your continued support at the level you feel is appropriate is very much appreciated.
