Words from the Board
The construction phase of the Gray Public Library expansion project is well underway and the dream of an improved library and community space to benefit all of the residents of Gray is more real each day! Children will have more space for activities and programs; staff will have more space to provide the best service to patrons; adults will have more space to enjoy books, movies, music, magazines, and computers; and the community will have new meeting spaces available during and after library hours.
The GPLA is committed to our goal of raising $250,000 to help offset some of the cost of the project. The Maine Community Foundation through the KIM Fund (Kids in Maine) has offered the GPLA a challenge grant of $100,000. This gives us a wonderful opportunity to double the power of every dollar we raise. Many of your friends and neighbors have already made generous donations and we are now counting on you.
The GPLA will be raising money for this campaign through November 2014 and will be hosting more fundraising events in the coming months. We are continuing our work with local businesses and charitable foundations and grants, but we know that much of the contributions will come from the generosity of individuals just like you.
We welcome a single donation, or if you’d like to pledge an amount to be paid monthly, those donations will also be matched through the challenge grant. (We’ll even send you email reminders if you’d like.) Please send your donation by check in the enclosed envelope, or drop your donation by the Library. You may also donate using a credit card through our secured website: www.GPLAofME.org
We would love to hear from you through email ([email protected]

Your support helps make your library and community a better place. Remember, every dollar you give is doubled through this Capital Campaign. Thank you for your generous support.
