High 5! Campaign

High 5!

Question

We have an awesome facility that has taken years of hard work and dedication from our community to bring to fruition; we're giving ourselves a high five and a pat on the back. So, what comes next?

 

Answer

Let's implement some improvements to the library in order to take our awesome facility to the next level! Here are some suggestions we've received from the community...

 

A

j

develop reading and play spaces in the library

B

 

expand our collection of books and movies

C

 

add innovative patron technology

 

Why

Enhancements to the library, such as those listed above, are not covered by property taxes or library fees, so the Friends of the Mendon Public Library, volunteers from our community, need to raise $25,000 to fund these.

 

Imagine this: if just 1,000 people were to give $25 each in 2017, we would reach our goal easily!

 

Let's make it happen!

 

How

You can show your support of your library with a suggested donation of $25, $55, or any other "High 5!" amount ending in 5 that you wish. If you should choose to give $105 or more, you can receive a complimentary one-year subscription/renewal to Mendon's official newspaper, The Sentinel.

 

Donate Online

You may donate online; with a donation of $105 or more, please indicate in the "Comments" field whether or not you would like to receive a one-year subscription/renewal to The Sentinel.

 

Donate by Check

You can also donate by check, made out to "Friends of Mendon Public Library", and mailed to the Mendon Public Library, 22 North Main Street, Honeoye Falls, NY 14472. With a donation of $105 or more, please include a note indicating whether or not you would like to receive a one-year subscription/renewal to The Sentinel. You may also bring your check to the library in person.

 

Donate by Cash

Finally, to donate in cash, stop in at the library at any time to fill out a brief donation form to submit with your gift!

 


 

Overview

Survey Results

Results from a survey the Mendon Public Library conducted in 2016 indicate that more than 1,000 respondents would like to see a design-improved library space, a larger collection, and innovative patron technology. These kinds of suggestions fall under the umbrella of "libray enhancements".

 

Library Income Coverage

Public funds (e.g. property taxes, fines & fees, state aid) keep the library open. Private funds (e.g. money raised by the Friends of the Mendon Public Library, grants) improve the library.

 

Why Another Campaign?

Every year, the Friends of the MPL raises funds for library enhancements by holding book sales, special fundraising events, and running campaigns like the "High 5!" Campaign. Donations of any amount ending in "5" are welcome for this year's campaign to raise $25,000 in order to develop reading and play spaces, gain access to greater patron technology, and supplement the library collection.
