$20,000 Donation Kicks off National Library Week

Posted on April 15, 2008. Filed under: library |

The McCracken County Public Library is celebrating National Library Week with A LOT of help from their “Friends.” The Friends of the Library has just donated $20,000 for the acquisition of new services, programs, and materials!

The Friends are a group of library lovers who make donations, raise funds, and support the ongoing mission of the library. This latest check represents the proceeds from the Summer 2007 and Winter 2008 Used Book Sales, the group’s bi-annual fundraiser. Library Director Marie Liang says, “This $20,000 gift validates what Anthropologist Margaret Mead is famous for saying: ‘A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.’”

In the last ten years, the Friends have donated in excess of $170,000 to the library. You can become a Friend today! Sign up by calling Friends of the Library President Maudine Buchanan at (270) 442-6263 or the library staff at (270) 442-2510. The group’s next used book sale will be at the end of July 2008. Planning has already begun. Be watching for details!

In the meantime, National Library Week is going on right now through April 19th. Stop by the Washington Street Branch or surf the Internet Branch to celebrate!
