We did it!

Everyone loves a happy ending and Schweitzer Brentwood Library patron David Jones provided one. Mr. Jones made a generous donation that put us over $10,000 for the February Endowment Challenge. This unlocks another $5,000 from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks for the Laton Endowment, an unrestricted fund that provides a new, sustainable source of income for the Library.

The Laton Endowment was created with a gift from longtime patron Ursala Maria Laton. Annual income from the endowment will allow us to make purchases or add patron services that aren’t covered by property tax dollars. As the endowment grows, so will usable income from the earnings. This will enable us to do more for the community.

The grand total raised for the February Endowment Challenge is $13,210.54 (net).

We love our donors, whether they gave $1,000 or $1 for a heart. Every day the Library is changing lives and making our community a better place. Your support makes all the difference. Thank you!
