Good afternoon, Library Supp…
Good afternoon, Library Supporters!

The Boilermaker came to a close and all five Charity Bib runners crossed the finish line. The three new/returning runners from the libraries have the satisfaction of a goal accomplished.

Our runner from Boston, Molly, and I (Lisa) finished only 20 seconds apart. What are the chances of that in a field of over 11,000 runners? It was meant to be. Molly is our most robust fundraiser, raising over $1,300 for audiobooks for the libraries. Thank you, Molly, for reaching out to your loved ones, friends, and enemies on our behalf!

Then there was the seasoned runner from the Albany area, Lori, who has short legs, but is a powerhouse. (I can safely disclose this as she is my sister.) She finished in just under 90 minutes.

What we all have in common is a love of libraries and a belief in what libraries do in their communities. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous contribution to the effort, which is nearly at $4,000 as I type this note with additional donations still coming in. As a result, we will soon be adding books on CD and digital audiobooks for all library patrons in the three county area to share.

Congratulations and a heartfelt thank you go out to the my fellow runners: Heather Urtz, April Bliss, Molly Brady, and Lori Gicewicz. May we see each other at many a start line in the future.
