GYRLA Annual Letter
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The Gilmanton Year-Round Library celebrated its fourth year of operation in September, proving to be a vital part of our community. Our library is a gathering place for all members of our community as each month hundreds of patrons visit the library. The library is a source of inspiration and imagination to our children. It is a source of comfort and calm to our senior citizens. It is more than just library cards, books and reading; our library is a cultural space allowing people to experience this community and
We can report good news and tell you that as a result of generous support from patrons and friends of the library, the GYRL will stay open through March 2014. But the reality is to stay open past March 2014 we need your help. It is imperative that the library be recognized as a town-supported community resource. The Board of Directors hopes the library will be a sustainable resource for many years to come. This can only be achieved with your continued efforts, and ultimately, with your vote.
There are many ways to help make this happen over the next several months. Let the Selectmen and Budget Committee members know why the library is important to you and your family. Attend the Public Hearing and Deliberative Session and let your voice be heard. Most importantly, vote YES for town-supported funding on March 11, 2014.
As always, donations are aggressively pursued. You can make yours today by going to www.gyrla.org and clicking on the "Donate" button. You can contribute using your Paypal account or most credit cards. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, any donation is tax deductible. We are grateful to all our supporters for their generosity and look forward to continuing to serve our community.
As we look forward to the future of our town and its growth, the library will continue to serve as a vital resource for all residents. As our community evolves, the library will be there to support us. With your support the Gilmanton Year-Round Library will be an integral part of our community for years to come.

Gilmanton Year-Round Library Moves Forward
The Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board of Directors is pleased to announce that since a new fund raising goal of $45,000
was established on March 13th in order to keep the library open beyond Nov. 1st over $32,500 has been raised through donations.
One fund raising initiative is the 400 Club. This is an opportunity for 400 people to donate $100. To date over 100 people have already
signed on. Remember, obligations of membership are simple: promise to inform neighbors and friends about the Library and urge them to support the Library as a vital asset to the Town.
Another fund raising opportunity is to donate the dollar value
your taxes would have been if the library had received Town funding. Some supporters have doubled that amount to cover a neighbor who might not be able to afford a donation at this time.
The GYRL board and staff thank all those who have already donated
to this important cause. If you still haven’t had a chance to contribute, you may send a check made payable to the Gilmanton Year-Round Library, or if you prefer, visit our web site www.gyrla.org, where you can make a donation through your PayPal account or with your credit card. Donations are tax
Join the 400 CLub
Cardholders and friends of the Gilmanton Year-Round Library are invited to join the “400 Club” to help cover operating costs for the Library through the forthcoming year. Dues are $100 per member. Four hundred members will raise $40,000, enough to offset most of the gap when voters failed to support the Library on the 2013 Town ballot. Obligations of membership are simple: promise to inform neighbors and friends about the Library and urge them to support the Library as a vital asset to the Town.
Already more than 100 members are on board.!
