Library foundation launches naming rights program

New Edgewater branch offers chance to create lasting legacy

Posted

Individuals, families, organizations, corporations and more can honor and recognize an event or someone special in their lives with a range of naming options available for a new library being built in Edgewater.

Donors who give from $5,000 to $50,000 can name major areas and service offerings in the library.

For those who give between $1,000 and $5,000, name recognition will be given for providing access to updated technology and other library amenities.

Individual donations will be recognized on a special donor wall inside the library.

“We’re excited to launch this program in conjunction with construction of the new library in Edgewater,” Jefferson County Library Foundation board member Tami Bandimere said in a news release.  “These naming opportunities allow donors to support library services and create a living legacy in Jefferson County.”

Construction on the new library began in March, and the grand opening of the new library and Civic Center is planned for the fall. Residents can expect to see a modern, 10,000-square-foot library with expanded hours, plenty of books and materials (including Spanish), designated areas for children, teens and adults, dynamic programming, access to computers and the Internet, free Wi-Fi, and bilingual staff to help patrons navigate the increasingly complex world of information and technology.

In addition, the library will serve as a Family Place, a center for early childhood information, parent education, early literacy, socialization and family support. Based on a recognized model of comprehensive family-centered services, the Edgewater Library Family Place will be the first of its kind in Jefferson County.

The naming program is presented by the Jefferson County Library Foundation and Jefferson County Public Library. Money raised will support enhancements to the building and its amenities.
