Friends of Ruch Library raises funds each year to fund library hours, as the County budget only funds 12 hours per week for the Ruch branch library. Our Mission is to raise awareness of library services, offer educational and informational programs that interest and unite the community, and work
diligently to raise funds to expand the library hours beyond what the current budget allocation provides.
It is time for the annual fundraising campaign, and the overall goal for this campaign is to raise $14,000.00 to fund Saturday hours through 2013. To that end, this Crowdrise goal is $1,000.00.
Do you value libraries? In my family, we use the library about twice a week every week. There are so many books to get through! Nook and Kindle are great, but nothing beats the experience of browsing the shelves for the perfect book(s), turning the pages, and interacting with members of the community all at the same time. Libraries are no longer just quiet places of study where one is always being shushed; they are community hubs to gather, discuss, share, and learn. Help us keep our library open an extra four hours each week, and keep the librarians busy!
