From a Washoe County news release and the Friends website
Friends of Washoe County Library presented a check for $100,000 to the Library Board today. The money will support library materials, technology, programs, marketing and staff training.
The library system receives monetary and in-kind donations throughout the year that assist in providing services and materials. The list reviewed by the board today includes the names of donors and grantors from July 1 through Dec. 31 and totaled $270,455 plus in-kind support.
“We are very grateful for the support we receive from individuals, the business community and local foundations, all of which strengthen library services to our community”, said Maurins. “We are especially thankful for the generosity and hard work of the Friends of Washoe County Library. Their annual contribution allows for free programming and much needed technology updates to our branches.”
Friends of Washoe County Library raise funds by selling donated books, and they have a used book sale running through Sunday.
