Library board looks at fundraising for building maintenance

Garry Cooley, executive director of the Rush County Community Foundation, attended the recent Rushville Public Library board meeting to discuss fundraising.

The trustees asked many questions about funds at the foundation. The name of the library’s potential fund was changed to Library Facilities Improvement Fund to show that not just new construction would be funded. Another change to the pass-through type fund was that in case of a discontinuation, the remaining money would go to the Pattison-Schrichte Fund, which the Library already has at RCCF, and not to the foundation.

The board decided to start the fund as soon as the minimum $2,000 is available. Director Sue Otte was authorized to sign the documents necessary to establish the fund.

“This is a great partnership,” board president Tim Yazel said. “It should entice people to give because of the partnership.”

In other action at the short meeting, the board voted to pay architect Steve Alexander $9,255 — payment in full for services given in 2008. All drawings by Prince Alexander Partners Inc. Alexander’s company, are the property of the library. At the September board meeting, the decision was made to seek information from another architect who has local interests.

Director Otte informed the board that the Friends of the Library will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday at the library to discuss a spring sale.

Next meeting of the board will be at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 16.
