Message From the Fundraising Campaign’s Leadership
The North Shore Library has provided top quality services to our community since its founding in 1979! Now, the anticipation and excitement around having a new library in the heart of Bayside is bringing the North Shore community together in wonderful ways. The current library building has served us well since 1986, but it has become outdated, too small to handle current demands, and is greatly in need of an upgrade.
The Library Board has joined forces with the Bayside Village Board to create an inspiring plan for building a new $8 million library. As part of its commitment to this project, the four municipalities of Bayside, Fox Point, Glendale, and River Hills are embarking upon the Building a Better North Shore Together Capital Campaign to raise the funds needed to complete this project for the North Shore community. We invite you to read over the enclosed details about our plans and hope you will join us as we work together to make our new library a reality.
Strengthening Our Community Bond
The library continues to play a critical role in each of our lives. It is the cornerstone to our community and a place where we can come together to enjoy engaging activities, work on projects, learn together, and enhance our relationships with one another.
Growing to Meet Our Community Needs
At the heart of our vision is the library’s commitment to public service and its mission to meet our rapidly growing community’s needs by providing free, easy access to information and entertainment that enriches and inspires all of our lives.
Providing Vital Resources to Our Community
In many communities, the library is the only place where all people can find information that will help improve their education, develop new skills, find jobs, build businesses, make informed health decisions, or gain insights into environmental issues. The unique role libraries have in a community makes them important development partners, both by providing access to information in all formats and by delivering services and programs that meet the needs of an ever-changing and increasingly complex society.
With your support the North Shore Library will continue to serve the needs of our community, improve the lives of our residents, and help guide North Shore to a brighter future!
