Monetary, book donations bolster library

One of El Progreso Memorial Library’s most popular fundraising efforts is book enrichment fund generated through memorial and honor donations. Over the months of August and September, the library received $1,101 in monetary donations and books valued at $50.

Library director Mendell Morgan reports that as the average price of a new hardcover book for the public library has gradually risen to around $35, bookplates naming the honoree and donor will be provided for each gift of $35 or more and will be used for the purchase of an appropriate book for the permanent collection.

Memorials and gifts to honor individuals or celebrate achievements and events –  a milestone birthday, promotion, award or business success, for example – may be made directly to El Progreso Memorial Library, 301 W. Main St. El Progreso Memorial Library is a 501(c)3 organization and financial gifts in any amount are fully tax deductible.

Vaughan, Tom L. and Nancy Potts, and Randy and Becky Gerdes; and Cresencia Mendeke by The Honorable State Representative of Texas Tracy O. King and Cheryl King.
