With this song playing in the background, please think of the Grand County Library District’s Capital Campaign in your holiday giving. With our libraries giving so much to you, isn’t it time to think about giving something back?

Add another day of Christmas and give to this campaign. A total of $385,836 is all that’s needed to reach the Mountain Libraries Capital Campaign goal of $2.4 million.

This figure takes on added importance when you consider that reaching this goal assures the donation of $250,000 in generous challenge grants if the funds are donated by the March 1, 2008 deadline. (A total of $200,000 is from the Gates Family Foundation of Denver and $50,000 is from the Boettcher Foundation.)

The Grand County Library District accepts donations in the form of cash, check, credit card, securities or online at gcld.org with PayPal.

For more information on giving, contact Pat Berger, finance administrator for the Grand County Library District at (970) 887-9411, ext. 107 or online at pberger@gcld.org. The mailing address is P.O. Box 1050, Granby, CO 80446.
