Dear Editor:

The Mount Carroll District Library is excited to start the New Year with another anonymous donor challenging the community to double the impact of their donations to unlock the $1.15 million Illinois Public Library Construction Grant.

Supporters have a second opportunity to double the impact of their donations for the greatly needed rehabilitation and expansion of the Mount Carroll District Library facility. All individual Rehab & Expand 2021 gifts up to a total of $10,000, dollar-for-dollar will be matched until the end of January.

Nearly $660,000 has been raised as of Jan. 1 to match the funds set aside by the Illinois Secretary of State. We have $520,000 more to go.

Thank you Mirror-Democrat and everyone for your enthusiasm and support.
