Dear Friend,

"Fortune brings in some boats that are not steer'd." – as quoted from Cymbeline by William Shakespeare. Thanks to you, our donors, fortune has indeed delivered a record amount to our annual fundraising campaign in the past year.

The Friends of the Lake Bluff Library's mission is to support and promote the library and to raise funds for special projects, programs and building needs as they arise. In the last year, using your donations, we sponsored the LEGO® building and robotics program for children a painting workshop for adults, Donuts for Dad and the balloon man at the sidewalk chalk competition. We purchased an AED device and funded the WI-FI upgrade and the butterfly release party.

Please help us continue to improve our library. With your help, future enhancements will ensure the library will be able to maintain its inviting atmosphere. We would deeply appreciate your participation in this community-wide fundraising effort. Won’t you take a moment today to complete the Friendship reply envelope enclosed? Alternatively, you can contribute online by using the DONATE button on the Friends of the Lake Bluff Library web page. Please remember to include your company's matching donation form, if available. Either way, you can watch your dollars make a difference. Additionally, you can support the Friends through the Amazon Smile program.

Thanks for your support!
