UPDATE ON THE NEW LIBRARY & FUNDRAISING GOALS

Henry David Thoreau, whose 200th birthday was on July 12, once said, “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

Well, we are putting foundations under our castle here at Peninsula Community Library.  Committees of residents have been hard at work raising money, applying for grants, holding community events, meeting with architects and more to build a Peninsula Community Library that will see us into the future.

To date, we have received gifts and legally binding pledges of $1,182,387.30 toward our goal to build a new library at the corner of Island View Road and Center Road. We could never have too many hands when it comes to this project. Interested in donating funds, volunteering, serving on a committee? Email me at vshurly@tadl.org or call me at (231) 223-7700.

Community is the foundation on which our new library is being built. We ARE the heart of the community, and you are the friends and neighbors that make it strong!
