WHAT'S HAPPENING AT YOUR LIBRARY......
PAUL AND KATE (ANNA KATHERINE) LOUND LIBRARY ENDOWMENT CHALLENGE
The children of Paul and Kate (Anna Katherine) Lound are making a challenge to patrons of the Shelby Area District Library to raise funds for the Library’s endowment fund. The family will provide a dollar-for-dollar match up to $5,000.00 of donations made to the Fund at the Community Foundation for Oceana County between now and August 31, 2017.
Mr. and Mrs. Lound, who raised 11 children on a farm east of Shelby in the Blooming Valley school district, are being honored because of their lifelong habit of reading that they passed down to multiple generations in the family. Funds raised from the Lound family challenge will be added to the Library’s existing endowment fund that was established in February 2005.
At that time, the Miller Group Charitable Trust offered a challenge match to honor the memory of Caroline “Kelly” Hansen Morse, who was a generous supporter of library programs and fundraising activities. Interestingly, Mrs. Hansen was a much admired teacher at Blooming Valley School attended by Lound children.
Thanks to support from the Friends of the Shelby Area District Library and many donors, the endowment fund has grown to $60,205 as of March 31, 2017. Fund proceeds have helped support children’s programming, on-line databases, and shelving. With the additional contributions to the fund, the Library hopes to offer new programs focused on post-secondary education and, for example, coding for kids.
Those interested in participating in the challenge can do so by contacting Library Director Tiffany Haight at 231-861-4565 or email@example.com. Donations towards the match can also be made online at www.oceana-foundation.org
