Library Renovation Fund

The Friends of the Campbell Library is fundraising in support of the Campbell Library renovation project. We’re so excited to see our new, fully-renovated library come to fruition, but we need your help to make the Campbell Library all that it can be.

Fundraising Priorities

  • Children’s Rooms: Enchanting spaces featuring interactive play features and cozy reading nooks to inspire a love of reading in our youngest community members.
  • Community Room: A central place for free programs that support lifelong learning, connection, and community engagement.
  • Meeting Rooms: Smaller spaces that utilize accessible furnishings and cutting-edge technology to provide access to new hybrid/remote working styles and support small-group collaboration.
  • Teen Area: Designated seating area for teens to study, connect, read, and recharge.
  • Lobby: Aesthetically-pleasing and inspiring lobby furnishings and support for expanded open hours that provide greater access to library materials for all community members.
  • Emergency Support Center: Dedicated space to meet community needs during emergencies, including access to power, shelter, and a warming/cooling center.
  • Additional Accessibility Needs: Including accessible restrooms for all genders, and accessible seating for seniors and people with limited mobility.

Your donation, of any size, will ensure that the new Campbell Library is a space our entire community can be proud of.

Thank you for your generosity!
