Giving Tuesday 2022
That was amazing! On Tuesday, November 29th there was a steady stream of donations to help UDPL establish the Library of Things.
Together, we raised $2,869.50 from 35 generous donors – more than double our goal of $1,000. Thank you for donating! We’re all looking forward to 2023 when the Library of Things will be stocked and opened for borrowing.
It’s not too late to join or renew your membership to the Friends of UDPL. The Friends pay for programs and services not funded through state and local taxes. Membership is our biggest source of revenue each year. In 2022, the Friends provided $40,000 for programs such as the new Adult Discovery and Learning series, Summer Reading Club activities, Museum Passes and Author Visits. Become a Friend today!
Congratulations to our early renewal prize recipients:
Act II Tickets: Neil Fishman
Copper Crow Gift Certificate: Leonard Watrin
Ambler Theater Single Memberships: Peter and Diane Kendall, Robert Michaelson.
