In Memoriam

The Friends raise money to support the library in a variety of ways. Our favorite way is fundraising. Here are current fundraising events that you can participate in.

Dollhouse Raffle

Coming up in October is a very special opportunity. FOUCL member and miniaturist, Kathy Lawrence, has graciously donated Mountain View Cottage dollhouse to FOUCL to be used as a fundraiser. It comes beautifully completed with all furnishings and battery lighting. Dimensions are 31” W x 20” D x 19” H and its estimated value is $450. It will be on display beginning in October at UCPL. Raffle tickets will be sold at the library on Monday and Wednesday mornings and at special events at the library during the month of October and at our Everything Christmas Sale November 4 and 5.

Tickets are 1 for $5 and 5 for $20. In keeping with the miniature and model theme, in addition to this adorable dollhouse, we will have as 4th prize a 3D sneaker jigsaw puzzle, as 3rd prize a papercraft castle, and as 2nd prize a holiday time build-it-yourself miniature room kit. The prize drawing will take place November 5 at 1 PM in the Community Room. You will not have to be present to win.

Don’t want or need a dollhouse? Consider purchasing raffle tickets to support our library and with the thought of regifting the dollhouse if you win it. It could go to a museum or local charitable organization, maybe one that provides housing to families with children. All proceeds from this raffle will go towards technology learning materials to be used with our library kids and youth. These kinds of learning materials are often referred to as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) or STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and the library is excited about being able to provide these kinds of learning experiences to local families.
