WEST NEWTON PUBLIC LIBRARY's Fundraiser:

The West Newton Library

WEST NEWTON PUBLIC LIBRARY's Photo

THE STORY:

Entirely funded by private donations and solely staffed by a team dedicated community volunteers, The West Newton Library services my hometown community and several other neighboring rural communities in SW Pennsylvania.
The Library is housed in a building which is in disrepair and cannot support the technology, circulation and meeting space needs of a 21st Century Library. Additionally, many of the surrounding communities require the services of this library as their facilities have closed due to inadequate funding.
I ask you to support me and the WN Library as I run the Chicago Marathon. I feel very strongly that rural communities, like my hometown, need modern and technology driven library facilities and services to support schools, adult continuing education and local small businesses and their owners and to provide meeting spaces and job search support….and most importantly, to give children a place to read and to dream about the world that exists outside of their small town.
