On the heels of a great September, the thermometer got another nice boost last month, with $19,596 added to the total.

Contributions to the annual fund campaign made up the biggest portion ($8,213), along with two private donations totaling $6K that arrived just before annual fund letters went out.

Last month’s results also included a $1,250 donation from Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, sponsors of the Nov. 15 free flu vaccine clinic.

Work is already under way for the second annual Tee Time at the Library (April 29 & 30, 2022) and sponsors are getting on board, accounting for nearly $1K of last month’s tally.

Sales in the Friends’ Book Nook added nearly $750, and the Friends are gearing up for the return of their Holiday Book Sale on Dec. 3, 6-8 p.m., at the library.

Finally, cash receipts (printing, damaged/lost items, etc.) added another $1,135 to the total.

As we noted last month, overall results include funds received for the STEM workstation — which is now fully funded and due to arrive later this month. This item was in addition to the yearly budget/private-funding goal of $108,034, making the adjusted total $99,842.

We are still awaiting word about 2022 funding from our three local municipalities. Thank you to those who’ve reached out to your local council members to express your support. Stay tuned.

Thank you for supporting the library!
