Donor Appreciation Party
Friends of the Library Donor Appreciation Party
Sunday, September 22
4:00 to 6:30 p.m.
Oakmont of El Dorado Hills
Make sure you get an invitation to this event!
The role of the Friends of the El Dorado Hills Library has significantly expanded since the founding members worked tirelessly to raise the funds necessary to build and open our wonderful community library in 2006. We decided to celebrate our past and future successes with a fresh, new logo, and very soon a new website, and a Donor Appreciation Party.
A library card allows any resident to enjoy all the free services offered by the El Dorado County Library system. However, membership in Friends of the El Dorado Hills Library provides the financial support to purchase books, eBooks, audiobooks, periodicals, 3D Print Lab materials and support, and enrichment programs for children, youth, and adults. Since 2006, the Friends of the El Dorado Hills Library has raised and donated over $600,000 to expand the free offerings at our community library. All told, the Friends of the Library has purchased about 40 percent of the Libary's collections! In the summer of 2019, The Friends of the Library provided $7,000 to fund the Universe of Stories, the Summer Reading Challenge, which features entertainment programs for children of all ages at no charge to participants.
Lifetime Members and Donors: Save the date of Sunday, September 22, 4:00 to 6:30 pm, for the invitation-only Donor Appreciation Party, generously sponsored by Oakmont of El Dorado Hills retirement community. (NOTE: this date was changed from an originally announced August date.) The party will feature live music, delicious food, entertainment, local dignitaries, and a chance to connect with other library supporters.
All Lifetime members and donors at the $50 or more level beyond basic annual membership dues will receive an invitation. Save your place by joining as a Lifetime Member or adding a donation to show your support.
The Friends of the El Dorado Hills Library work in partnership with library staff to ensure that our donations support the vital needs of our library community.
