ABOUT THE BOARD
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.
The Lead Library Endowment Board is made up of up to 7 volunteers dedicated to raise funds to continually improve our library. When the library director comes to us and asks, “May I have money to purchase a new magazine rack?” We want to be able to say, “YES”! And with the continued fundraising efforts and the over $50,000 already raised in the past 10-ish years, we are able to do just that.
The board is always looking for new volunteers and board members, so if this is something you might be interested in, please contact us and let us know!
