A Grant from the Sewickley Valley Community Fund Brings Fridays Back to the Library!
We are pleased to announce that the Library will reopen on Fridays beginning April 9, 2010. The Sewickley
Valley Community Fund (SVCF) has generously committed $25,000 immediately and a matching grant to the
library of $25,000 for a total donation from the Fund of potentially $50,000.
In January, the Library suffered a 52% cut in State funding which resulted in reduced hours, staffing and
collection cuts. The Library Board of Directors recently mailed a letter of appeal to more than 11,000 Library
users seeking donations in order to reopen the Library on Fridays. “We need to raise at least $25,000 from the
appeal letter mailed to Library patrons,” said Library Board President, Stephanie Dangel. “I believe that our
patrons will support the Library with their donations. I’m encouraging everyone to donate so that we can meet
the Sewickley Valley Community Fund’s challenge.”
The President of the Sewickley Valley Community Fund, Bill Logsdon, said, “The Board of Directors of the Sewickley
Valley Community Fund was pleased to offer the Library a matching grant to reopen Fridays. This grant is in
keeping with the mission of the Community Fund – to support financial cooperation and collaboration among the
municipalities of the Quaker Valley area, and to support community projects with a regional focus through matching
grants. The SVCF considers the Library to be a regional asset and it should be open seven days a week for everyone
and, in particular, for children. The educational resources offered at the library are invaluable.“
Library Board Treasurer, Wayne Murphy , said, “If the community and Library users donate $25,000 and the
Sewickley Valley Community Fund matches it with the full $50,000, the Library will be able to stay open every day
through the first quarter of 2011. Unfortunately, the Library is anticipating even more future funding cuts from the
Commonwealth as proposed in Governor Rendell’s 2011 preliminary budget. It will be important that we establish a
sustainable funding model with more dependence on local funding.”
Please donate, thank you!
