Thank you!

June 29th, 2010

Last night EPL Friends presented our Interim Report at the City Council meeting outlining the details of our fundraising and outreach efforts to date.

We are delighted to report, that after only a short deliberation, we received the Yes vote by 7 – 2 (Aldermen Burrus and Holmes voted against) to continue funding branch services, using funds raised by EPL Friends, for the North and South Branches through March 1, 2011.

In just 4 short months, thanks to everyone’s efforts, we collectively raised more than $171,000 total, with more than $125,000 in individual donations, and another $50k coming in various donations from the Library Board.
We can’t thank you enough for your unwavering support, financially, philosophically, and physically as you came out in force to support our many efforts — including last night’s jam-packed meeting.
Please stay tuned as there’s more adventure on the horizon, but for now, enjoy this unbelievably beautiful day and thank you, again! We are enormously grateful.
