Foundation for the Indian Trails Library District
The Indian Trails Public Library gets approximately 90% of its funding through property taxes. Unlike other governmental entities, such as park or school districts, the library does not have a revenue stream or charge fees for services, other than recouping the cost of materials for special programs.
Fortunately, the library has a foundation that actively raises funds for requested items and helps advocate for the library in the community. In the past the library has purchased
- Books to be given out to children for reading programs
- Expansion and enhancement of the Reading Garden
- Launch Pad on the Go Kits
- Sewing machines for classes
The foundation raises funds through
- Used book sales
- Annual appeal
- Special events
- Restaurant days
The foundation has two exciting projects to support in 2021:
- Green Lake Park StoryWalk
- Improved Reading Garden Seating
Discover more about these projects that support literacy, reading and contemplative experiences.
