Dear Friend of the Auburndale Community Library,
Thanks to the extraordinary support of our friends and neighbors, The Auburndale Community Library (ACL) is currently celebrating its ninth year of operations as a 100% volunteer-run library. The ACL, as a non-profit enterprise, depends 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 received from the community during the 2017 successful ACL Fund drive allowed us to purchase hundreds of books sought by our dedicated patrons. We are committed to building and maintaining collections for both children and adults. It is always a delight to see children checking out small stacks of books from our impressive collections.
We are asking you to help us grow stronger moving forward by considering making a financial contribution to the ACL. The 2018 ACL Fund will build upon what we have started and support needed improvements that will continue to benefit the ACL and the community. Last year we were able to purchase audio-visual equipment to support the many activities that take place at the ACL and this year we plan to purchase more comfortable seating for the activities.
We feel privileged to work on behalf of our neighbors and patrons to provide this special place where parents, children, teens, senior citizens, and all residents can experience a local library and community center—all in our beautiful setting in the heart of Auburndale.
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 all of ‘your friends at the ACL’, we thank you for your support.
Linda D. Winslow
2018 ACL Fund Committee Chair
