A let­ter of thanks to you from the Library…

Dear Friends,

A tremen­dous thank you to every­one who joined in and donat­ed dur­ing the vir­tu­al San Juan Coun­ty Fair in August to raise funds for the new library build­ing project.

We were grate­ful to join the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation’s match­ing grant pro­gram, which high­lights orga­ni­za­tions in our com­mu­ni­ty, and draws atten­tion to cur­rent and future needs.

We are thrilled to announce that we raised more than $14,000! In addi­tion to your dona­tions, we earned an extra $500 bonus grant for the high­est dol­lar amount raised on the first day of the Fair, as well as the Foundation’s $1,000 match­ing grant for our first $1,000 raised.

In addi­tion to the funds raised, your par­tic­i­pa­tion con­tin­ues to affirm the strong inter­est and com­mit­ment this com­mu­ni­ty has in build­ing a new library! We will con­tin­ue to work hard on this project to make that dream come true.

This project still has a long way to go, and we’ll reg­u­lar­ly com­mu­ni­cate with you as we progress. With wide­spread com­mu­ni­ty sup­port like yours, we can get there!

Many thanks for your support!

Lau­rie Orton
Library Director

  1. We are so for­tu­nate to have such a won­der­ful resource on this island. I am thank­ful to the ded­i­cat­ed staff, board of direc­tors, vol­un­teers and Friends of the Library who make it all work. I’m also thank­ful for the staff and board mem­bers who, through­out the years, have led with vision to keep up with the demand. I look for­ward to a new facil­i­ty with more space and more park­ing and con­ve­nient­ly locat­ed for school chil­dren. Thanks for all you do.
