A group of Washington County Library supporters were looking to raise $10,000 to buy 2,012 books for the library system in 2012.
The campaign was a success, and Washington County Library Partners on Tuesday donated $14,700 to the Washington County Library.
Ken Stone, president of the board of director of the foundation, presented to the gift to the Washinington County Board. Through his Woodbury Patch blog, Stone tracked the nonprofit’s progress:
- 2012 in 2012
- Countdown to $10,000!
- Thank You Platinum Bank!
- Neither Snow, Nor Rain...
- Halfway There for '2,012 in 2012' Book Campaign
- Can't Read This?
- More Hours and More Books!
- Give to the Max?
Washington County Library Partners’ goal was to raise enough money for the purchase of 2,012 large-print and children's books in 2012. For more information about the foundation, visit www.librarypartners.org.
