Campaign 2016 for funds! Our cup runneth over!

Good news! Our cup runneth over!

Why are we showing a jar of marbles? Simply because this is the way to gauge how our fundraising is going! For every 10 euros donated we have put a marble in the jar and after one week the jar is full…and overflowing thanks to the incredible generosity of our members and friends! May you be profondly thanked.

For those of you who would still like to donate, we, of course are still taking checks..we will put your donation to the library’s excellent cause!

Goal for total donations in 2016 = 2000 euros budgeted.

December 21st = 3875 euros have been donated!
