Donnellson Public Library Raising Money

Feb 6, 2012

One southeast Iowa library is taking a different approach to its proposed expansion.

Most fundraising efforts identify a building design and the amount of money needed.

After that, the donations start to come in for the project.

Director Brenda Knox says the Donnellson Public Library is reversing that process.

“We are going to let our fundraising drive determine the design of the building,” says Knox.  “We have some great ideas, but we want to make sure we can raise enough money for the kind of building that we need.”
