Dear Butler Residents and Merchants:

The Friends of the Butler Public Library is proud of our 30-plus years of improving and upgrading our library beyond what the local budget provides. This support includes items such as the furniture throughout the library, many pieces that contribute to the available technology, and interior signs. We also enhance each year’s Summer Reading Program with exciting events.

It is only through your generosity that we have been able to accomplish as much as we have done. In 2014 we were able to fund the library’s new Museum Pass Program, offering free admission to you and your family to three sought-after museums; we purchased a new 70” flat-screen TV, allowing the library to present monthly Family Movie Nights and Wednesday Afternoon Movies; and we provided a program called “Op Art” by Art Kids Academy in December. Now more than ever, your support is needed.

Please join us and become a Friend of the Butler Public Library for 2015. We will include the names of those contributors who wish to be recognized in our next newsletter. In addition, patrons donating $100 or more may choose to have their names engraved on our Patrons’ Plaque. Of course your privacy will be respected if you prefer not to be listed in either place, as many of you have so chosen. We wholeheartedly thank you for your continued support. We are also very interested in your ideas and feedback. We look forward to your comments and suggestions and welcome you to become an active member of our group.
