Our new library / community center design and site plan is totally complete. We’ve dotted every “i” and crossed every “t”. Now with detailed bid documents approved by the township, we are officially OUT TO BID!
The Library Foundation and Board have been working toward this goal for several years. Thanks to dedicated volunteers and strong community support, we are almost at the finish line. The Foundation had raised nearly $2.6 MM from more than 700 donors. This amount is only $177,000 below the estimated construction costs. Our final task is to make sure we have the funding in place to begin construction. We are planning to raise this amount before the bids are opened on July 26th!
That’s where our Community Walk of Knowledge brick program comes in. We are paving the path to our future – one brick at a time. If you haven’t already purchased a personalized brick, now is the time to do it. Residents and businesses can purchase a “champion” brick (8” X 8”) for $1000 and select up to six lines of text, to recognize their family, honor a loved one, or include their favorite quote. A “citizen” brick (4” X 8”) is also available for $500 and has space for up to three lines of text.
So, buy a brick and help finish the project! To order a brick, you can download the form and mail it, along with your check, to the library. Or visit the Bricks R Us website at www.bricksrus.com/order/cranburylibrary.
