East Lake Community Library 2022 Annual Fund Drive
Don’t Hesitate – Donate
East Lake Community Library [ELCL] opened in its present location in 1999 because Moms & Dads wanted a library in our area for families. With continuing support from our community, we have grown from a collection of donated books in a donated store front to our present facility.
Now, in 2022, we want to expand our services to the community. We ask each patron to support our Annual 2022 Fund Drive.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 by April 15th to fund our community-generated strategic plan vision of an outdoor special events venue.
Monies received from the county do not fully fund all the wonderful offerings at ELCL which you enjoy today. We get grants, book donations, gifts and seek special funding sources to augment offerings and we will continue to work to get them.
But we need YOU – our patrons too!
We ask each patron to support our annual fund with a $25 donation.
(Or more if you are feeling generous!)
YOU can make this happen!
You are among over 5,000 patrons who frequent ELCL each month by checking out materials, attending concerts, STREAM learning initiatives, community meetings, cultural programs, children’s literacy programs, teen after-hours special gatherings, book or sewing clubs or using on-line databases. You use Wi-Fi or the computers or come in to read or browse the collection, check out the Gizmo & Gadgets collection or get genealogy or tech assistance.
And now, ELCL is one of only eight Florida libraries that is a new Passport Acceptance Facility that can handle new passports and photos.
If you enjoy these programs, help us fund more! To do all of this we need donations from patrons like you!
