The new elevator
We have reached a point in the elevator construction where we are waiting for the elevator machinery to arrive from the manufacturer. Most programs are back to normal, but there may be a few weeks in April that we will need to put programs on hiatus. We will continue to keep you updated about program cancellations on our website.
Please consider donating to the elevator upgrade fund. We are steadily getting closer to our goal, but we still need help. The estimated cost of upgrading the elevator is $160,000. We have been fortunate enough to receive a matching grant from the O’Connor Foundation up to $100,000. This means every donation we receive will be doubled and put towards the construction of the elevator. We have also received an NYS Library Construction grant for $25,268. Thank you to those who have already so generously given!
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our elevator upgrade fund. There are several ways to make a donation:
-Cash at the library
-Mail a check payable to
Olive Free Library
PO Box 59
West Shokan, NY 12494
-Make a donation to the library via our gofundme page
All donations, no matter the size, are very much appreciated!
