Monona Library Grant Deadline Extended

The Madison Community Foundation has extended the deadline for grant pledges and donations to the Monona library. A gift of $500 will endow a book in your name in perpetuity. Any gift amount is appreciated. 

From the Library web page: "The Booked for Life campaign has been extended! We have raised $92,000 thus far with a goal of $100,000. We're almost there. You can still contribute and ensure that the Library will have quality materials on our shelves forever!"

Booked for Life Campaign

The Monona Library Foundation has received a grant from the Madison Community Foundation that will provide a 1:2 match for every dollar we raise (we get $1 for every $2 we raise). The grant will provide up to $50,000 if we can raise $100,000.

The funds will be creatively used to endow books for the library's collection. A $500 donation will endow a book at the library pretty much in perpetuity - or until the end of time whichever comes first. This simple plan has the potential to give our library a foot up toward attaining and maintaining an excellent collection. Learn more!
