Richard Wisniewski accepted a check from the Rotary Club of La Conner for the La Conner Regional library Building fund. The check in the amount of $5,000 was a second annual installment of $5,000 toward the new library.
Wisniewski, President of the La Conner Library Foundation Board said “the library is a place for life-long learning and inspiration and it’s a key resource available to everyone in the community…. One day we’ll break ground for a new, larger, environmentally green library that will provide more open space, including quiet areas for study and reading, digital access, and a community room open to the public for library programs and new offerings.”
According to Lee Carlson, Past President of the La Conner Rotary, literacy and education are major focus areas for the club’s contributions, in terms of both service and financial support. “We have supported the library’s homework databases for the benefit of students for many years,” Carlson said. “We recognize the value that a new library will bring to the community, and are proud to support this project that will serve the community -- from babies to seniors -- well for many years.”
