Spring is really here, and there are signs of renewed energy and growth all around us.
Marcellus “MT” Turner has hit the ground running as our new CEO and Chief Librarian, and it’s been a joy getting to know him and introducing him to many of you. He brings a wealth of experience and ideas, and we look forward to featuring him in an upcoming newsletter.
We're excited to announce a special challenge for The CommonSpark campaign. Three families have initiated the North Tryon Neighborhood Challenge - matching up to $200,000 in gifts toward the construction of the new Main Library from their uptown neighbors. If you live, work or have interests in uptown, this is an opportunity to double your investment in the neighborhood.
National Library Week was a big success, and Bookmark the Town signs are blooming all over the County! To date 1,200 signs have been planted, hundreds of them by new Library supporters. It’s not too late to get a sign in honor of Mother’s Day or just because – they’ll be available through the end of June, so there’s still time to plant a sign and grow community.
If you’re out and about in the sunshine this weekend, come visit us at the University City WineFest – we’ll be there with Bookmark the Town signs!
Thank you for your support, in every season.
