Dear Friend of the Auburndale Community Library;
2019 marks the 10thanniversary of the Auburndale Community Library (ACL)! Thanks to the extraordinary support of our friends and neighbors and the 100% volunteer staff, the ACL is alive and well. As a non-profit enterprise, we depend entirely on donations from the community to meet expenses, including book acquisitions, our occupancy fee to the City of Newton, accounting and insurance fees, and technology.
The generous donations we have received from the community over the past 10 years have allowed us to purchase hundreds of books sought by our dedicated patrons. Last year, almost 6,000 books, puzzles, and games were circulated. We remain committed to building and maintaining collections for both children and adults. We are asking you to help us grow stronger moving forward by considering making a financial contribution to the ACL. The 2019 ACL Fundwill build upon what we have started and support needed improvements that will continue to benefit the ACL and the community.
The ACL is primarily a library, but it is also much more. It serves as a community meeting space for activities such as knitting and quilting groups, yoga sessions, Magic Card tournaments, book clubs, movies, and the very popular Tuesday morning story time for young children. Yes, the ACL is a very busy place.
You can help us by making a financial contribution to the ACL Fund.We welcome donations of any size! Please use the enclosed form, or visit our secure online PayPal account to make your donation. We will also continue to accept donations at the front desk when the library is open for business.
On behalf of the Auburndale Community Library we thank you for your support.
Linda D. Winslow
2019 ACL FundCommittee Chair
