2012 in 2012

We'd like to buy 2,012 books for the Washington County Public Library system. Can you help?

The Washington County Library Partners has launched the "2012 in 2012" campaign.  We intend to raise enough money to buy 2,012 books for the Washington County Public Library system this year.   $20,000 will do the trick -- and we have already received a $10,000 challenge grant.  So that means we need to raise $10,000.

So far, we've received contributions and pledges of $2,500. 

Of course, we'd love your individual donation -- but we're also looking for groups to step forward and help us raise the money.  The Woodbury Rotary was the first group to step forward (thanks!) and we have several book clubs who say they'll do so.  Do you belong to a group that could help us out?  If we get 16 groups and each raises, say, $250, that would be $4,000.

You can contribute online or by mailing a check.  Heck, one of our board members would come to you house and pick up your contribution if you like!
