The library is asking for the public’s help with donations to furnish and equip the library’s auditorium

The full use of the Main Library’s addition could be speeded up by as much as 18 months, if the fund appeal is successful

Francis Boyer and Mrs. Richard Corrigan are on the board’s Special Gifts committee

The new addition is 41,000 square feet of additional space, with 10,000 feet of new shelving
