  Dear Friend of the Library,

Thank you for helping to keep our shelves stocked and our collections up to date.

In recent years, the Library’s budget for acquiring new materials has been decreased dramaticallya 26% reduction that has resulted in 1.5 million fewer items circulated. This comes at a time when more people than ever are turning to the Library to find everything from employment guides to new books to share with their children.

Stanley and Judith Zabar are supporters of the Library like you. They are challenging fellow Friends of the Library to help bridge this funding gap…and have agreed to match the first $25,000 given to the 2012 Friends Spring Book Fund Campaign.

If you believe the Library should have enough books and materials to meet the needs of all its users, won’t you accept their challenge?

Your contribution will put new materials on Library shelves right away. And the impact of your gift will be doubled thanks to the generous offer from the Zabars!

Thank you for considering this request and for all that you do for the Library.
