Posted by cwagner on

February, 2016

Dear Friends and Patrons,

We have extended our matching gift fund drive!

There is still $200 in matching funds available. This means that your gift to the Library is worth twice as much!

We will use these funds to set up and stock a new special section on job skills. This section will include up to date books on communication skills, writing resumes, preparing for interviews, studying for the SATs, college applications, and more.

We are experiencing a greater need for these books every year, and you can be a part of bringing them to our community.

Please help us to get the most out of this gift. Your support will be recognized with a placard on our new shelf.

Thank you for your continuing support of this community,

Madison County Library
