El Progreso Memorial Library is close to realizing their $50,000 challenge with $45,150 received so far. The deadline to donate is Thursday, Jan. 31.
The challenge launched last month when a benefactor offered to match, dollar for dollar up to $50,000, each financial gift the library received before the Jan. 31 deadline.
Funds may be used to buy books or magazines, pay for equipment or operating expenses generated for the library, museum, archives, bookstore or meeting rooms.
