The private funding thermometer rose by $7,437 in April, bringing the total to $45163, or 33.1 percent of the 2024 goal.

Donations made up the largest portion, boosted by a $5K donation from the Robert P. Kelly Family Foundation — as well as several individual gifts. Thank you to all!

Strong sales in the Friends’ Book Nook contributed $750, and Tee Time revenue added nearly $600.

Finally, cash receipts of $530 for lost and damaged items, printing/copying, and room rentals, rounded out the rest.

If you missed last month’s Friends Used Book Sale, be sure to check out the Book Nook right next to the lecture room all year long. There are hundreds of great books, puzzles and media for all ages — all at great prices — with new items added weekly! You’re sure to find something fun and special for yourself or a loved one, and all proceeds benefit the library.

Check out other ways you can support the library here, and check back next month for May results.
