W.B. Konkle Memorial Library releases long-range plan
W.B. Konkle Memorial Library announced on Friday that its Board has adopted a new Long-Range Plan for the library and the Montoursville Community.
The Long-Range Plan, found on the library’s webpage, details a three to five year plan that will enhance the “Time to Refresh” capital campaign currently underway. The campaign, its largest fundraising initiative in its history, has a goal of $325,000 goal and is well on its way to success, announcing $230,000 has already been donated.
The Long Range Plan outlines initiatives such as renovating the facility, building the endowment fund, developing a plan for comprehensive programming for fall ages, developing a volunteer staffing plan, and implementing an enhanced communication to the public of the activities of the library.
Dennis Correll, Volunteer Board President, is pleased that the board is creating a new vision for the library. “Montoursville is so fortunate to have an iconic facility and a highly treasured community library. I continue to be in awe at the level of activity that occurs in such a small library. I am blessed to volunteer for such a great community service and with great volunteers and staff. We look forward to our revealing of our “Refresh” renovation in 2022.
As the library undergoes this major renovation of its space, the goal is to improve the library for people of all ages and abilities. This project addresses the need to accommodate both the physically challenged and our youngest populations.
Anyone interested in donating can stop in to pick up a contribution form, or call 570-368-1840 to have a brochure mailed. Online donations can also be made by visiting: www.fcfpartnership.org/give/donate-online and choosing “Konkle Memorial Library Fund.”
