Uptown Westerville is a Place to Support our Library

Our nationally recognized Westerville Public Library, 126 S. State, is looking for community support:

As the year 2009 concludes, we invite you to show your support of the Library with a financial contribution.

Reductions in state funding for public libraries -- a 32% loss, or $980,000, for our library this year -- have forced substantial cuts in the Westerville Public Library budget.

The impact? Closed Sunday hours; 13 open library positions that cannot be filled; a book budget cut in half; and many more behind-the-scenes reductions.

Below are four ways you can help your Westerville Public Library.

-- Support the Westerville Library Foundation Annual Appeal:

-- Adopt a Book:

-- Become a Volunteer:

-- Join the Friends of the Library:

Great libraries don't just happen -- they are possible because of the involvement and generosity of patrons.

Thank you in advance for your continuing support of our community treasure!

The Westerville Library Foundation
