Dear Residents of Colleyville and Friends of the Colleyville Public Library,
Did you know:
- Our library celebrated thirteen (13) years of service to our community in November.
- Use of the Library has continued to grow each year since its opening and in all of its key performance measurements, the Library has experienced double and triple digit increases.
- The Colleyville Public Library Foundation—and you—have donated $567,700 to supplement the funds the city provides to our library.
- The Colleyville Public Library Foundation, largely through a very generous donation, supports the Summer Reading Program.
- The Foundation has provided funding for the Opening Day Collection, staff work stations, children’s computers, some of the library’s furnishings, CD maintenance equipment and many other items that are outside the city’s budget.
- The Foundation has donated a large share of the funds to complete the second floor build-out and reorganization of over $200k.
- For FY 2016 the Library welcomed 120,202 visitors, presented 589 programs to 19,987 attendees, had 14,618 patrons registered, a collection of 80,452 and total circulation of 222,123.
During difficult economic times, our library is especially essential to our community. Library usage actually increases when times are difficult. We congregate there, take our children, and check out books, DVD’s and CD’s.
Our library cannot function to the degree we would like without private funds. We are once again asking you to donate to the Library Foundation as we join the City of Colleyville in updating our Library to meet the needs of our community Specifically …
- Update and increase the number of reader seats
- Revise public access to technology
- Expand access to popular children’s programs
- Engage the aging population
- Transition to a single service point on the first floor
- Improve access to popular materials
For the price of a few books, you can help support our library. Please join us in continuing to make our dreams for an outstanding public library come true. You may DONATE on-line at right.
