I’ve had a couple of exciting updates on the library that I’ve wanted to post, and I figured that now is the time to post both of them!
If you’re a regular reader and/or a resident of Berryville, you probably know that we launched our fundraising campaign for a new library building 5 months ago today and that we also had a reading challenge to raise additional money this summer.
Read ahead for updates on both projects!Continue reading “Updates!”
Want to Help Us Raise $15,000 for a New Library This Summer?
Hey, everybody, it’s summer, which means it’s time for, well, summery things, like the library’s summer reading program. 🙂
Last summer, we had a blast with our reading challenge through Beanstack, pandemic be darned. We also raised over $15,000, well ahead of our $10,000 goal. Since then, we’ve had a few more challenges, including for watching movies and just donating in general, and we are always so pleased and humbled by the enthusiastic response we receive.
And thanks to the Squires family and their generosity, we can do this again this summer. They will be matching a dollar for every hour read between June 7 and July 30, as long as we hit the goal of 15,000 hours.
Want to participate? Of course you do! Keep reading to find out how.Continue reading “Want to Help Us Raise $15,000 for a New Library This Summer?”
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
I posted this earlier this summer (here and here) about our reading challenge to raise money for our building fund for a new library facility. The goal was for folks to read 10,000 hours during this year’s summer reading program (a real jump from the 6,800-ish hours read during the previous summer). The Judy G. Western family was willing to match the amount, dollar for hour, as long as we hit 10,000 hours. So, how did we do?
Summer Reading Challenge Update
As we announced back in early June, we’re trying to raise $10,000 for the building fund this summer, and all you have to do to help is read (and log your hours)! Over 350 people have signed up. Over 230 have started recording hours. We reached our halfway point of 5,000 hours on June 29. We are so excited for how enthusiastic participation has been and appreciate everyone who is participating. But we have to make it to 10,000 hours by July 31 to get the $10,000, so let’s not slow down! And it’s not too late to join us
Want to Help Us Raise $10,000 for a New Library Building?
It’s time for summer reading, and if you’re a long-time library user you know the drill: go to the library, sign up, log your reading and activities in a paper booklet, get prizes. But this year we have some cool new additions that will let you participate without ever leaving home (except to pick up prizes) and will let you help us raise a very cool 10G for a new library facility.

Exciting News and Announcements
Usually, I try to do a book review for the second week of every month, but I wanted to take a break from our regular blog programming to chat about some exciting new developments here at the Berryville Public Library. . . .
