Crozet Library Fundraisers Ask Lawmakers for Contribution

Posted: Updated:

Fundraisers for the new Crozet Library are turning to lawmakers in Richmond for support. Construction is just about halfway done.

The Build Crozet Library group has raised a little more than $500,000 to furnish the facility.  The group sent out another $1 million in funding proposals to individual donors, corporations and foundations.

This week, lawmakers will consider chipping in $125,000 dollars.

"That will really go a long way. We're very close to having the money we need for furnishings. As soon as we know that's taken care of, then we'll change speed a little bit and go after donations for books," said Bill Schrader, chair of Build Crozet Library.

The library's collection will expand from 35,000 books to 75,000 in the new location.

The Crozet Library is expected to open in August.
