Summit County Library Foundation
The Summit County Library Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) entity formed in 1991. Its Mission is to serve as an advocate for the Summit County Library System and to provide financial support beyond the Library's normal operating expenditures, when unanticipated needs arise and for capital projects. The Foundation is served by an all-volunteer Board of Directors drawn from interested residents of Summit County. If you are interested in finding out more about the Foundation and its activites please call Brian Edney at 970-389-2382.
The fiscal year ending June 30th, 2012 proved to be a very successful one for the Foundation. We were able to raise a record total of $41,988 and we would like to thank all the Library supporters whose generosity made this possible. The Foundation supported a variety of Library programs and more information about these can be found in the attached Annual Report.
A decision has been taken by the Board of County Commissioners and the Town of Breckenridge to renovate the old Breckenridge School House on Harris Street to provide, amongst other facilities, an 11,100 sq. ft. Library to replace the present Rankin Place location. The total cost to renovate the whole building is $7.4 million. The Library Foundation will cooperate with the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance, and supported by the Board of County Commissioners and Town of Breckenridge, to raise $2 million towards the total cost. The project is in the preparatory planning phase and we will post more details about the Foundation's role and participation in the months ahead.
Meanwhile, in the current fiscal year the Foundation plans to provide more than $26,000 to the Summit County Library in order to continue to support the following:
- Children's reading programs
- Expansion of the downloadable e-book and audio book collection
- Funding for the Library 's community relations events
To reach these goals we have just launched our Annual Fall Fund Raising campaign and we hope that you will be able to support us again this year.
