Do you remember the donation that launched the capital campaign for the new library?

On January 3, 2008  Gerald Lind, Dale Bosworth, and Ed Sarff from Petersburg’s Masonic Lodge presented then Library Board president Julie Hursey with a $25,000 donation towards the new library. The Masons, an organization with deep historical roots in our community recognized of the value of a new library early on. With their donation,  they were among the first to propel the fundraising effort for the new library forward.  As Julie Hursey, then Board President noted, their gift was a “vote of confidence” for the new library. According to Dale Bosworth,  “we’re trying to give you a jump start…I think it will be an incentive for others to follow”.

To thank them for their generous gift, the Archive Room in the new library will be named after Petersburg’s Masonic Lodge.

Alaska’s Rasmuson Foundation has awarded the City of Peters burg with a ‘top-off’ grant for up to $500,000 for the new library.   This ‘top-off’ grant relies on the community committing an additional $1.5M to the project by the end of 2011.

$5.27M (cash and in-kind) has been raised towards the fundraising goal of $6.78M for the new library. $1.5M still needs to be secured for the project to be fully funded.   Petersburg residents will have the opportunity to vote on a $1.5M bond on October 4, 2011 that would complete the funding for the new library.
