Library Donation From Quilcene
Monday, September 17th, 2012
Last August, on the primary election ballot, the Jefferson County Library  failed to receive the 60% approval required, so the Library was not able to bond for the $8.4 million needed for the new construction.  But the problem remains; our Library is suffering from its own remarkable success.  There’s not enough room for the books and other resources, nor is there enough room for everybody to use the Library and its spaces as they would like.  The Library still desperately needs a “fix” and to help the library get close to their goal, generous local families have set up a CHALLENGE so that every donation of $1.00 to $1,000 will be matched dollar for dollar.  Here are three ways to make your tax deductible contribution:  1. Make a check payable to the Jefferson County Library and send it to: Jefferson County Library, Attn: Ray Serebrin, Director, 620 Cedar Avenue, Port Hadlock, WA 98339; 2. Click here and follow the prompts to donate online.  Remember to ask for your donation to be matched under the “Make a Difference Campaign;”  3. Go to the US Bank in Quilcene and ask the teller to deposit your donation to Count Me In for Quilcene, specifying the Jefferson County Library remodeling fund.  We will gather up all these donations on Sept. 17 and deliver the total amount to the Library as a gift from Quilcene.  Thanks for supporting our Jefferson County Library. You’ll be glad you did!
