Dear Mr. Smith,
Thank you for making a charitable contribution to the Louisburg Library. Your gift of $250.00,

Libraries have ever growing impact in their communities as a source of information access,
employment searches, and activity centers. Your contribution to our Annual Fund helps us
apply your gift where it is needed the most. Contributions to the Annual Fund help us further
our collections materials, increase afterschool programs, update computers/furniture, maintain
the library, and much more.
Thank you again for your generous contribution to the Louisburg Library. Supporters like you
