The Worthen Society Celebrates Generosity
The Worthen Society has been established to recognize people like you who have made a financial commitment to ensure that future generations of Champlain Islanders will have a robust library. Local taxpayer dollars only cover current operating expenses. Your private donations are needed to create an endowment to support your new building and additional services, to perpetuate a truly great public library.
As you may have seen, construction of the new South Hero Library in our future Route 2 location is underway! A huge “thank you” to the many people who came out to join us for our July 21 groundbreaking ceremony, and to those who participated as speakers, shovel bearers, musicians, photographers, and supporters in so many other ways. Judging by the smiles we witnessed, the ceremony and celebration were a huge success. We’ve shared some photos here, and encourage you to read the press release about the groundbreaking and plans for the new building if you missed it!
We’ll also be posting occasional updates on our separate website dedicated to the new library project. We invite you to learn more about the future South Hero library here.
If you’re thinking about donating to the Building Fund, don’t hold off – your help is still needed! Please visit the Library Foundation’s page to find out how you can make a difference at this critical point in our fundraising effort.
