Letter to the Editor: Library fund drive successful; repairs underway


Last November, the Strasburg Community Library launched a fundraising drive to repair, paint and maintain its historic building.  “Love Your Library” was the theme chosen for this drive.

As we bring this effort to a close, I want to express my deeply felt thanks to the people of Strasburg and Shenandoah County, as well as to our local civic organizations, who generously donated to the Strasburg Library Capital Fund.  Thanks to you, we raised over $27,500, exceeding our original goal by 10 percent.  This was only possible because of your generosity and demonstrates the strong community support for the library.

If you’ve been by the library recently, you know that work has already started on repairing and painting the building.  As you see this work progress and witness its completion, please take pride in the knowledge that you folks made this happen.

Thank you again for your concern, your commitment, your generosity and, most of all, your love of your library.

Ray Willis,
chairman, The Strasburg Library Capital Fund Campaign
