THE LIBRARY NEEDS A NEW ROOF

PLEASE,

HELP US KEEP OUR BOOKS DRY

HEAVY RAIN+LIBRARY ROOF=LEAKS

The Library has a roof problem.  It leaks!!  One place it runs down is along the inside of a door.  The children's section has an area that must be covered with a tarp whenever hard rains are predicted.  The other leaks come and go depending on how hard it is raining.

Work to replace the roof the Library shares with City Hall started in mid-November.  The Library's portion of the total cost of a new roof is estimated to be around $80,000.  This will be a major hit to the Library's maintenance fund and will have budget implications for years to come.

We are seeking funds in any amount to help offset the costs of the repairs.  

HOW YOU CAN HELP

A GoFundMe page has been established:

GoFundMe.com/carlinvillelibrary

Donations may also be made directly to the library, either in person or by post (Please make checks payable to Carlinville Public Library):

A donation jar has been placed on the circulation desk

or

Checks may be mailed to the Carlinville Public Library, PO Box 17, Carlinville, IL 62626.

As it says on our GoFundMe page:  Contributions to the roof fund are wildly appreciated and extravagantly recognized by a deep bow from all the librarians. :)  Thank you, thank you, thank you! Clap, clap, clap!

Donations to the Carlinville Public Library may be tax deductible; donors should check with their tax advisor.
