Harry Bennett Flooring Project

$3,552 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 24 days
The Ferguson Library's Harry Bennett Branch is a super busy library that gets 175,000 visitors a year. The building is almost 20 years old and the carpet is so worn  that in some places it's being held down with duct tape!

It's a tripping hazard for seniors and little ones and badly needs to be replaced.

We have found a new durable flooring product that many other libraries use that is washable, and made from recycled content. Best of all, it has a 40-year life span.

Replacing the flooring throughout the building isn't cheap. The whole project is $280,000. We have already raised $182,000 and need your help to raise the rest.

Please help us improve the library branch we all use and love!
