Pine City Library Asks For Donations
The Pine City Library will unveil plans for its upcoming expansion project on Thursday at an open house. However, the library is still in need of about $200,000 for the work and today Pine City and the library is asking area residents to make a donation through the website GiveMN.org to help with the cost.
Pine City Librarian Kristy Koch:
The website is hosting Give to the Max Day where it matches donations made until 8 a.m. on Wednesday, November 18th. The goal, according to GiveMN.org, is to raise as much money as possible for Minnesota charities in 24 hours.
Koch says this is a great way for the community to help put a dent into the cost of the library expansion. A anonymous donor has promised the library a $200,000 donation as long as the community matches the contribution. Koch says the website can help cover the cost.
The three non-profit groups that receive the most donations will earn an extra financial gift of either $5,000, $2,500, or $1,000.
All donations are tax deductible. To donate go to GiveMN.org and type in Pine City Library.
