FUND OUR FLOOR!
Calling all library lovers! Please help us fund our floor at Odell Public Library.
After 26 years, the floor is worn and unsafe in places. We envision a mix of carpet tiles and vinyl, and the estimate is impressive: $80,000 for over 8,000 sq. ft. of flooring. This price includes materials and installation, labor for removal of old flooring and floor preparation, and moving the books and shelving. The Odell Public Library Friends donated $5,000, reducing our goal to $75,000 and an anonymous donor has generously offered a $10,000 matching grant!
We welcome all contributions, and donors may add their names to a colorful book-themed display in the library. We will recognize donations of $500 and over on a plaque in the library, or donors may remain anonymous. Levels of giving are:
- William Shakespeare $10,000+
- Ernest Hemingway $5,000
- Louisa May Alcott $2,500
- Mark Twain $1,000
- Dr. Seuss $500
Many of you have personal stories and memories about Odell, either in the old building or in the new one. Please consider sharing your stories in the comments section. We would love to read them.
Thank you for considering a gift to the library.
For those who prefer not to donate online, checks may be mailed or dropped off to Odell Public Library at 307 S. Madison St., Morrison, IL 61270
. We hope to reach our goal in early 2022!
