JANUARY-APRIL: FRIENDS FRESHMART FUNDRAISER
The Friends of the Library and Rob Dagenais, the owner of the Freshmart in Eganville, have developed a new initiative that is open to all patrons of the library and members of the community. Rob will make a donation to the Library of 2% of the total purchases made in his store from January 1 to April 30, 2015 and everyone is invited to contribute their store receipts. There is a box in the library where they can be deposited. This is a really easy way to support this valuable asset to the community and support a community-minded local business at the same time! Please save your receipts regardless of how small and encourage others to participate. Every little bit helps and they'll add up to something pretty significant.
