A 20th Birthday Present for the Library – You Can Help!

The Friends of the RJCL, together with the school and public library staff and a library designer, have developed a plan to modernize some of our furniture. Our fundraising goal is $20,000.

We will start with two rooms most in need of updating: the “Fish Bowl” (the small glass-enclosed classroom located in the children’s section) and the larger Langton Conference Room (near the Elementary School entrance). Funds will be used to furnish the large, heavy tables and chairs with lightweight, stackable chairs and smaller, collapsible tables. This will let us easily reconfigure the rooms to suit different purposes, giving us more flexibility to meet patron needs.

YOU CAN HELP! Send a check or donate online at the Friends’ GoFundMe page. Any donation is welcome and appreciated!
