Frequently Asked Questions:
-Who/What is the Foundation?
The Nederland Community Library Foundation is the fund-raising arm for the library. Money raised by the NCLF goes to support all aspects of the library, including programming, book and magazine purchasing, computer and technology support, and even land development.
-What does the Foundation do?
The NCLF performs a variety of fund-raising activities. For example NCLF hosts an annual used book sale that allows the public to purchase inexpensive and used books that the library collects from the community. The NCLF also sells “pavers”—the bricks outside the front door that can be engraved with a special message or commemoration. The NCLF also sends an annual letter to library supporters to report on how donations are spent and to encourage further support. In addition to these activities the NCLF also hosts a yearly appreciation party to thank the library volunteers who are critical to the library’s smooth functioning.
