Henderson Libraries need just $15,000 more to reach a goal of $100,000 by April 30.
The library system has lost $3 million in annual revenue. That has left a big gap in the budget that would normally be used to buy books, magazines, newspapers, CDs, DVDs and other materials.
The Henderson Libraries Foundation has been working to fill that gap. While $100,000 sounds like a lot of money, it is only between 10 and 12 percent of the library district’s materials budget. The foundation is looking for individuals and businesses willing to take the Grand Challenge. The challenge is to commit to raising $1,000 in a month’s time. To participate, go to hendersonlibrariesfoundation.org and fill out the challenge form, then turn it into the foundation.
