The Elkins Kiwanis Club made a donation of $10,000 to the Elkins-Randolph County Public Library’s building fund on April 5, 2017. The donation will contribute to the plans to add to the library’s current space.
“We thought there was no better way to reach out for a long term, permanent gift to the community than to provide to our library,” said Ben Shaffer, club president.
The library’s building project will almost double the size of the current library, allowing for additional community education, upgraded technology, a dedicated children’s area and more access to today’s informational demands.
“The $10,000 donation coming from the Kiwanis Club is amazing,” stated library Director Audrey Taylor. “The building project is going to help us further our services into the future, so that we can support our community better. I want to thank Kiwanis from the bottom of my heart, as well as from the staff and board members.”
Kiwanis is a global organization of member-volunteers whose mission is dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis members dedicate more than 18 million volunteer hours and invest more than US$107 million annually in projects that strengthen communities and serve children.
