Campaign for Excellence 2011

2011 Friends of the Library Campaign for Excellence Report

Led by honorary co-chairs Ruth and Scott Russell Sanders, the second Campaign for Excellence focused on library services for adults. We surpassed our campaign goal raising $28,927 thanks to the generous support of so many individuals and businesses.

Campaign funding has supported:


  • winter and summer reading programs for adults and teens
  • downloadable audiobooks and music
  • equipment for homebound deliveries
  • digitization equipment and support for the Indiana Room
  • one-on-one adult literacy tutoring and conversation groups for English learners (VITAL)
  • film series
  • requests for purchase of books and movies for the collection

In addition, $5,324 was contributed to the Friends' Collections Endowment and $1,174 was contributed to the Friends' VITAL, Children's, and General Endowments.
