                                                                          Bucksport, ME 04416

                                                                                                                   March 2017

 

Dear Friends and Patrons, 

     The Buck Memorial Library, at the bequest of Richard Buck (grandson of Jonathan Buck), was built 130 years ago for approximately $20,000.  Restoration of the West Exterior Wall and North Chimney is estimated to cost ten times that amount.  This would complete our exterior building restoration project and we are in hopes that it will happen this year, making for a very nice building present, indeed.

     Our operating budget for 2017 is $68,970, up nearly $2,000 from 2016.  As Trustees we use your contributions wisely, providing patrons from Bucksport and the surrounding areas, with the Library services they enjoy and have come to expect.  

     Your tax-deductible donation will go a long way in meeting our operating expenses and achieving our restoration goals.  Thank you in advance for your support and we hope you can find a way to join us in celebrating our 130th Birthday.  

                                                                                                                   Sincerely,

                                                                                                                   Larry Wahl

                                                                                                                   Chairman,

                                                                                                                   Board of Trustees
