About the Fund WHO? The public library has been part of Eau Claire since 1858. For over 160 years, it has given members a chance to discover, explore, and connect. WHAT? We are now raising money so that the library can help everyone in our city. The Story Builder Campaign will get $11.5 million from the city, but we still need to raise $7 million to reach the goal. WHAT DO WE NEED? • A third floor • A 200-seat event space • Larger children’s programming space • Rooms for meetings, big and small • Quiet places for studying • Rooms for tweens and teens • More bookshelves • More computer stations • A learning lab for all ages • A children’s play-and-learn space • New restrooms • And so much more WHEN? The Story Builder Campaign will start in September 2019 and end in 2020. Work would start in 2021. HOW DO I DONATE? It can’t happen without you, and we will be thankful for donations of any amount.
