Capital Campaign Co-Chair Judy Kerr said the donor will provide $25,000 if the library can raise the same amount between now and February 1.

“This two week period is a very short time to attempt this but I feel certain that we will reach that goal,” Kerr said.

The nearly $3.2 million total will be used to build a two-story addition that will almost double the library’s space.

Kerr said this follows the model established when the community’s Carnegie Library was built in 1904.
