Fundraising

Libraries strive to transform communities through access to information, resources, and technology, and you can help support and sustain our efforts at any level, from donating craft supplies, making a financial donation, or volunteering with us. The Silver Lake Library is currently in the process of raising funds for building renovations. We hope to expand and upgrade our facility, so that we can better serve our patrons.

Fundraising efforts are lead by both the Silver Lake Public Library and their Foundation.

Fundraising Events:

Book Sale

In 2020 the Library weeded over 500 books from their collection. This means that we have boxes on boxes of books that need a new home. June-September we will be offering these books to our community for free will donation. Library staff will set up a table with a couple of these boxes every Tuesday at the Farmer’s Market.

RADA Cutlery

All year around the Library Foundation sells RADA Cutlery. This could be a great gift for weddings and graduates! If you would like to purchase an item from the catalog click here

Silver Lake History Booklets

In honor of Silver Lake’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, the Library made arrangements to have copies made of Emma Cones Richerter’s history booklet. The booklet is available for sale – $5 per booklet.

This phase involves removing and replacing the crumbling concrete. If funding permits we are considering adding a mural on the east wall. In addition to the funds we currently have available, we need to raise $40,400 to reach our goal.  Donations will be MATCHED up to $5,000.
