Million Pennies Campaign raises $160.81 in October 2012!

We’re proud to announce that you, our loyal library users, contributed $160.81 in cash and change to our Million Pennies Campaign in October 2012. We have now raised $7,191.06 since the start of the campaign in April 2010. Thanks for your generosity!  We received an extra bump this month from donations by authors participating in Celebrating Milligan Authors, our 2012 Homecoming event.

The Library staff would like to extend a hearty thank you to October’s donors: Tim & Jamie Hatfield, Jonathan Herd, Clint Holloway, Jen Patten, Josh Ramsaran, Gabe Rees, Erin Roland, and Adam Tomlinson. Adam Tomlinson is the winner of our monthly drawing. He will receive the hardcover The Brick Testament: Stories from the Book of Genesis. Congratulations, Adam!

Bring your loose change (or cash or checks) and drop it into the plastic cube at the Circulation Desk. If you’d like us to thank you by name, please write your name on one of the slips of paper in the tray next to the cube. We’ll let everyone know about your generosity. Next month’s prize is the 1999 hardcover White Oleander by Janet Fitch. We’ll draw a winner on December 3rd from the names we’ve collected. When we reach our goal, we’ll allow you, the contributors, to name a study room whatever you like. Every penny helps! (If you’re not familiar with the Campaign, check out original post on the library blog.)

Incidentally, we will also take your unwanted but gently used books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and audiobooks for our Million Pennies Book Drive. There’s a donation box in the library lobby. Thanks again!
