The Westerville Library Foundation is inviting companies, organizations and individuals to join us in supporting a project that will inspire a child’s love of reading, and will guarantee that children have access to quality books in their home.
To accomplish these goals, the library is teaming with an established, national program--the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The Foundation is developing the funding for this outstanding opportunity.
Since 2000, the Imagination Library has mailed a book each month to registered children from birth until the age of 5 years, working through local partners. About 5,500 kids in this age group live in the Westerville School district. The Foundation will raise the funds to pay the fee of $25 per year for each registered child.
We are excited to commit financially to this exceptional program. The library plans to kick off registration in January 2016. In preparation, the Foundation is seeking sponsors to assure a strong launch and a successful program. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on becoming a part of the Imagination Library funding team!

The mission of the Westerville Library Foundation is to secure the future of the Westerville Public Library. A library like ours - nationally-ranked, vital and active - functions as a valuable community resource. The Foundation, governed by a volunteer board of community leaders, is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping enrich the collections and programs of Westerville Library. Through your support we are helping to expand the opportunities the library offers our community. The Foundation raises funds to help ensure that our great library stays that way.
Many of these options may have a tax benefit. An attorney or tax adviser can provide guidance about giving to the Foundation in ways that are best for your situation.
Our partner, The Columbus Foundation, can offer you additional information on giving. As the community’s trusted philanthropic adviser for more than 65 years, The Columbus Foundation offers resources, knowledge and expertise in charitable giving. Call 614.251.4000.
The Foundation has helped provide the funds that make the following services possible for the community.
We welcome your support of the Library through the Westerville Library Foundation. If you would like to contact the Foundation, you can do so by emailing them at email@example.com. If you have any questions about additional giving opportunities, please contact Don Barlow, Westerville Library Director.
