VIRTUAL LIBRARY & UPDATES

Foundation for the Indian Trails Library District

Why Donate?

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. 

In the past, fines for overdue books offset expenses of special projects. However, in 2019, the library made the decision to end fines because it felt fines negatively impacted people’s access to material. 

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

You can help

The foundation seeks donation of all amounts from people who want to make sure their public library is a strong community organization. All funds raised go directly to enhance and expand the services and programs of the library.

Consider making a donation today to support your library! To make a donation in person, please contact  Susan Dennison or call 847.279.2222.
