Library needs donations

Sunday, June 22, 2014 - Updated: 10:12 AM

Dear Cris,

The Lake Pleasant Library is excited to showcase plans for its expansion with many events this season.

Starting off the summer will be a cookout of hot dogs and hamburgers (price by donation), a silent auction and a bake sale July 5 from 12-2 p.m. An open house July 23 will feature entertainment and desserts; Aug. 6 come for "Café at the Library." Both events are at 7 p.m.

Raffles are our rage this summer! An Adirondack quilt and original woodcarving are on display in the library. Monthly raffles for local attractions and fun items for children and adults are also being held. Stop at the library to see these items as well as the new expansion plans.

We will continue with book sales at the weekly Speculator Farmers Market. Raffle items will also be available.

The library staff also has some great programs lined up for the summer, including the popular Utica Zoo and "surprise incentives" for children attending the reading sessions. All these events can be seen on our Facebook page and website.

Our goal is to raise awareness of the need for an expanded library and raise money for the endeavor. As you look around our community you can see new and exciting things happening (new gardens, lakeside park expansion, etc.). The addition of a library that will enhance services and community space is another way we can say our community is being revitalized.

We have received substantial support from the State of New York for this project, but our community must do its part to raise matching funds. Committed to spending no new taxpayer dollars for the project, we appeal to the community to financially support us in any way they can.

Please support our events, learn what we are about and help us move forward with a financial donation. Brochures are available which explain various ways to give. Designated expansion donations can also be sent directly to Lake Pleasant Library, POB 300, Speculator NY 12164.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Karen McComb for the

Library Expansion Committee
