Santa loves the Picton library and arrived early this holiday season. An anonymous donor pledged $100,000 in a matching campaign – every dollar you donate will be doubled, up to 100k. But hurry! The deadline is December 31, 2020. The goal is to raise $100,000, which will generate $200,000 to this campaign. Make a donation in your name, or surprise a loved one this holiday season by donating a gift in their name.
“I am constantly humbled by the generosity of this amazing community that we live in”, said Fundraising Chair Alexandra Bake, “and never more so than at this time. The offer of $100,000 in matched funding will help ensure that our library expansion moves ahead very soon. I challenge our community to be as generous as they can be this Christmas season, so that we can raise the full $200,000!”
To date $2,050,000 of the $2,800,000 fundraising goal has been raised. The goal is to get shovels in the ground ASAP and start the new year with the beautiful library renovation and expansion underway.
The expansion and renovation to existing building will double the current library space without impacting its historic features, and will feature an enlarged children’s area, flexible quiet workspaces and meeting rooms, accessibility improvements and an efficient environmentally conscious design. It will also include an expanded collection with more DVDs, books, CDs to share with all branches.
The Picton library has been serving the community for 112 years. Your donation will ensure that the library will continue to enhance the lives of future generations.
