Time to Hit the Books!

The Washington County Library Partners is happy to announce we have a $10,000 challenge grant. If we raise $10,000 by September 30th, a single anonymous donor will match it with another $10,000. The money will go to our first major project — “2012 in 2012.” We intend to raise enough money to purchase 2012 books for the Washington County Library this year. Your contribution is fully tax deductible up to the limits of the law.  We have already raised $2,000 towards the matching grant!

If you’d like to help — or want to know more — check out our site.  We happy to take a check in the mail or you use your credit card and contribute through our secure PayPal link (it’s on our “Join” page).  You can send us an email at  In addition to raising funds for our 2012 campaign, we’re looking for board members or people who can help in other ways.  (Are you good at html?)

Partners is a new, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization designed to help make the Washington County Library a great library system. Our primary mission is to raise money for public libraries.  We intend to provide support not only in the short term, but also create an endowment for the next generation of libraries and library patrons.
