As we often do at this time of year, we look back on all we’ve accomplished and consider what the approaching year might bring. We review, calculate, remember, snap our fingers and say, “Oh, that’s right, I need to write that down.” And, if you’re like me, the best way to remember, for yesterday or today, is to make a list.
I am a list maker in my personal life, and yes, I still handwrite them. For all the apps that are out there for making grocery, holiday, or party lists, for me, there is nothing like the sight of my many-itemed chicken scratched list, and the feeling of drawing a fast line through the task I just completed. Finished!
As a professional, I have the same practice, and as a fundraiser for Sedona Public Library, it is vital that I tally all that we do. I simply can’t ask for support from individuals, businesses, or foundations without being able to tick off the ways we make Sedona a vibrant and wonderful place to live.
So, once again, please bear with me as I present my annual list of 50—count them, 50!—items: services, programs, and more that we make available to the community. These benefits and activities are waiting for you at two locations, for free!
By the way, as we’re in the throes of our end-of-year campaign, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that when you support the Library, you support everything on the list. Special bonus? Your gifts will be matched, dollar for dollar, UP TO $50,000! Our matching donors have upped the game and challenged the community to contribute $50,000 to their Library. We’re halfway there, help us hit the $50K mark?
Giving to the Library is really the best deal in town, worth every dollar. Read on!
If you’ve already made your gift, or you’re just now putting it on your to-do list, thanks! Happy Holidays from all the staff of Sedona Public Library! Please visit Sedonalibrary.org/donate.
