My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Friends Of The Jefferson Public Library, Jefferson, OR, USA
Raising progress above complacency. I participate in my community of Jefferson, NH with the Jefferson Elementary School Parent Teacher Association; the Friends of the Jefferson Public Library; and the Jefferson Athletic association. I feel they all work together to provide the best possible activities, programs, and outreach for our children and families of our community. Providing all of these opportunities to our community without raising taxes on the residents of the town is a challenge during every season. The investment is re-payed with each child that is included in a fitness activity; has a book read to them; experiences an author or presentation that otherwise wouldn't have impacted their lives.
Friends of the Jefferson Public Library is currently working along with a town appointed committee to raise funds to build a new Jefferson Public Library. We are excited to see the efforts of our group prove to the town of Jefferson that the Public Library is a valid and valuable asset to the community. Our current and original library is a historic building once housing one of the original school houses for our town. The building lacks running water, and ADA compliance.
