Half Way to $2 Million Goal

On Thursday, June 18 we raised the progress level on our thermometer sign to one million dollars – halfway to our three year goal! In honor of the upcoming weekend’s Hudson Pride festivities, and to emphasize the all-inclusive nature of the Library, our latest addition was posted in rainbow colors and “presented” by local drag queen, Trixie Starr.

The Campaign is supported in part by gifts and pledges from The T. Backer Fund, The Bank of Greene County Charitable Foundation, The Chaiken Foundation, The Children’s Foundation of Columbia County, The Alexander & Marjorie Hover Foundation, The Hudson River Bank & Trust Foundation, The Raymond C. Kennedy Foundation, Inc., the New York State Public Library Construction Grant Program, The Rheinstrom Hill Community Foundation, The Taconic Foundation, Inc., and many generous individuals and corporate sponsors.
