Campaign Update-June

June 2019

Although the Capital Campaign for an expanded library is the culmination of planning and work over six years, the Newbury Public Library Foundation members are ready to raise funds to make our future library come true. Our non-profit Foundation is established and approved by the Federal government. Our documents and case study are ready to share, you are reading our first update, and our new website is nearing completion.

The Foundation is aiming to raise half the funding of construction cost, asking the voters to pay the remainder through a Warrant Article in March 2020. The Select Board is supportive, the Trustees are in high gear, and the Foundation fundraising team is in full swing.

Community is the focus not only of our fundraising campaign but also of our future library space. We are very fortunate to have had a generous campaign kick-off donation of $30,000 by a resident and loyal library patron who has reserved one of our naming opportunities. We are also very fortunate to have an initial list of Advisory Committee members and Library Supporters.

How Can You Help: 
We are currently looking for Leadership and Leverage. We need your help. There are many ways to volunteer. We are looking for people to serve the Foundation in several capacities from simply declaring your public support for us to working on our Foundation Board or a subcommittee. Working on this community project now will feel very satisfying when we have the ribbon cutting on a building that will shape the future of Newbury. Please consider stepping up. Contact Regina Cockerill or phone 603-763-5747.

Please chat inside your own community of friends and neighbors, share the story of the Newbury Public Library and this crucial Capital Campaign project. If the library has made a meaningful difference in your life or the life of someone you know, please share that story with us. Supporters grow supporters.

To pledge a donation once the funding is secure, learn more at the We Need You link for further details. Every donation counts. Thank you in advance for your support and kind consideration.
