Buy-A-Brick Project
FINE FREE WEEK
National Library Week,
April 12-18
This replaces Amnesty
in August
You are invited to purchase an engraved brick that
will be placed near the entrance to the Library. This
is a wonderful way to honor friends, family or yourself with an inscribed, personalized
message. Bricks may be purchased for $100 each. All proceeds will go to the Library’s
capital fund which is used to maintain and enhance the library. If you missed the brick
project the first time around, here is another chance for you to make an important
contribution to the Library.
