Letters Setting the record straight
To the Editor:
There was an error in the Aug. 28 article listing the organizations participating in this year's United Way. The Vermillion Area United Way is supporting the community project of the Vermillion Public Library Foundation, Inc. and not the Friends of the Public Library.
While both the Foundation and the Friends benefit our Library, they do so in very different ways. The Friends have contributed to the library by buying such items such as chairs, carts, shelves, and computer printers and by supporting programs such as the hugely popular and successful Summer Reading Program. The non-profit Foundation supports larger projects to promote the growth and development of the library in general.
The Foundation is assisting with the ongoing renovations by sponsoring the construction of the new Children's Story and Activity Room.
Thank you for this opportunity to set the record straight.
Steven Waller, president
Library Foundation, Inc.
