Group steps up fundraising efforts
DEARBORN – The city’s Library Foundation has revved up its campaign seeking donations in support of library projects.
The foundation, which has been working to benefit, promote and enhance the city’s public library system since 2005, recently purchased five new educational computers designed specifically for children from toddlers to second grade.
These computers will be installed at all three branch libraries (Bryant, Esper and Snow), matching those already at Henry Ford Centennial Library (HFCL).
The foundation also is reviewing plans to redesign HFCL’s Youth Activity Room, used for programs for youth of all ages. This is phase 2 of work done in 2008 when the foundation funded the renovation of the entire Children’s Area.
Residents recently received a mailing from the foundation asking for donations in support of library projects. Donations also can be made by picking up a brochure available at all library locations, or by going to www.dearbornlibraryfoundation.org and clicking on “Make a Gift.”
The foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is not an agency of the city.
