Lead Library Endowment Board

According to our bylaws, this is what we do:

1.  Raise endowment funds to perpetuate the goals and visions of the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Lead Library.

2.  Engage in fundraising, programs, services and other activities that will promote the visibility of the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Lead Library and increase public awareness of the functions, programs and needs.

3. Foster the development of local groups with similar purposes in support of the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Lead Library and to collaborate with such groups in pursuit of common interests.

4. Raise, receive, invest and distribute funds and hold property, in furtherance of the above stated purposes. 

Meet our great group of board members who have dedicated a lot of time and hard work to our library.
