Spring for Libraries

Annual Fundraising Campaign

East Central Regional Library is excited to announce our third annual fundraiser, Spring for Libraries, which runs April 1-30, 2024! 

Each branch of ECRL has put together a wish list of items that will directly impact the patrons of their branch. Read more about each branch’s wish list and campaign goal below. 

100% of your donation stays within the library branch of your choosing, and will go toward the wish list items specified by that branch once goals have been met.
