Fundraiser Update

January was a month that went by quickly. We had snow and ice, that is beautiful to look at from the cozy seat by the window while reading a good book. (We might be bias.)

Hopefully January was good for you.

Fundraiser Update

In January, we updated the status of our fundraiser for a new shelving unit to add to our collection. Our children's room is full. Our desire is to move the Young Adult books out of the children's room and into the general collection room. This will give the children's room the ability for growth.

Fundraiser chart
On December 3 of the needed $2000 for on shelving unit we had $750.

On January 4 of the needed $2000 we had $1025.

Today, February 11 at the time of writing we are sitting at $1743. We are almost there.

These new shelves are metal library shelves from Tennsco. They will replace the wooden shelves that are currently holding our biography section. We will then move the wooden shelves to the 'floor' where the biography section will be moved to. We believe in being good stewards of what the community has entrusted us with.

As a reminder, the Jennie Woodworth Library is a community and volunteer built library. We are able to operate because of community support. You support this library by visiting, making purchases in our books sale, donations, and word of mouth. We appreciate all of our patrons and supporters through the years and ongoing. 

UPDATE -- as of 2:30pm February 11 we have reached the goal to purchase one shelving unit. Thank you all so very much. (We will still accept donations. There is plenty of need at our little library.)

Fundraiser Update

 It seems like just yesterday we were at the beginning of 2021, yet here we are. January 4th of 2022 already.

Shelving Fundraiser Update

Our fundraiser is well on it's way! We are currently at $1025 of the needed $2000 for the first set of shelves. That is over half way, let's do this! We believe that our community will come together and get this taken care of.

As a reminder, the new shelving will allow us to move the Young Adult Books out of the Children's Room giving room for expansion there, plus because the shelves allow more books than the existing wooden shelves we will have additional room added with that as well. 

We can not wait to get this need met.

If you would like to donate to the library shelving or just to the library, you can stop by the library with cash or check. Town Hall will also accept donations for the library. 

We do have the option of making Memorial Donations in honor or memory of someone. Please contact the library for more information concerning this.


Make sure to come by the library for our used book sale. All proceeds of the sale will go to the shelving fund. We will be putting hardback books out soon.
