Here's a round-up of some newly-seen library fundraiser event ideas, plus a re-cap of some previous local events:
Sandy Zuehlke (director of Coloma Public Library) shared this fundraising success story:
In January 2009 the Coloma Area Historical Society (CAHS) held its "hugely successful" 2nd annual Chili Cook-Off. It drew ten competing teams from local businesses, business owners, and the general public. Over 150 people attended the event, held in the Coloma community center, and it was standing room only!
Tired of the book sales and bake sales?
The Libri Foundation's list of fundraising ideas offers 68 fundraising, ideas including ethnic potlucks, historic home tours, plant sales, and more.
All of the ideas have been successful fundraisers for Friends groups or other library supporters in rural communities.
