From the Harford County Public Library:
The Harford County Public Library Foundation made a donation of $15,000 to Harford County Public Library on December 6, 2010. The funds, which were raised during the Buy-A-Book Campaign, will be used to purchase materials for the library system.
“The HCPL Foundation Board is very excited to be presenting this $15,000 check to the Harford County Library for material purchases,” commented Terry Troy, Foundation Board President. “Thank you to the Harford County community members who have been very generous and supportive of the Foundation.”
Funds were raised during the 2009 Buy-A-Book Campaign which asked library card holders to support the library by becoming a donor to the HCPL Foundation.
Foundation Director Vanessa Milio indicated that, “most donations came in as gifts of $25 or $50, which may seem small but added up to a generous donation for our library system.”
On hand to receive the funds was Library Director, Mary Hastler. “Our customers generously support library resources and services in Harford County and this is evidenced by the giving spirit of our community,” stated Ms. Hastler.
