A 20th Birthday Present for the Library | You can help!

The Friends of the RJCL have been working with the library staff and a library designer on a plan to replace some of the library's large, heavy tables and chairs. We're looking at lightweight, stackable chairs and smaller, collapsible tables. This new furniture will give us more flexibility to meet patron needs, by letting us easily reconfigure the rooms to suit different purposes.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to furnish the rooms that are in most need of updating: the “Fish Bowl” (the small glass-enclosed classroom located in the children’s section) and the larger Langton Conference Room (near the Elementary School entrance).

YOU CAN HELP! You can donate online at the Friends' GoFundMe page, or drop off a check at the library. Any donation is welcome and appreciated!
