The KVLA Events Committee and the Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s summer event benefitting the Keene Valley Library. The health and safety of our extended community is our priority and we hope that you and your families are well during this difficult time.
This decision has repercussions for the financial and programmatic health of the library. We count on the summer benefit for just over twenty five percent of our revenue for the year. These funds, along with our annual appeal, help us run our programs, pay our incredible staff, maintain our facility, and purchase books,technology, and more.
If you can, please consider making a donation to the Keene Valley Library today to help us offset the loss of this event.
And while the popular silent auction and 50/50 raffle are on hold until 2021 we will, instead, focus on supporting our local businesses by entering everyone who makes a donation of $100 or more into a raffle. One person will win a prize that includes gift certificates to 8 local eateries. By supporting the library you are also helping to keep our vital local businesses viable.
Stay safe, healthy and we look forward to taking you “Around the World and Back Again” next year.
