Thanks to your generous support we donated $20,000 to the Buda Library for 2020! From youth programs to online resources to award-winning books and more, the Friends annual donation is a critical funding source for the Library especially as the demand for services and programs continues to grow.
FY 2019 was a record breaking year for every metric tracked by the Library including the most library accounts, checkouts and program attendees. Library Director Melinda Hodges shared the following data for FY 2019:
The Library's growth mirrors our city's growth and is in line with a national trend that shows more Americans visited the library in 2019 than the movie theater.
We have a lot of work ahead but we're ready to roar into the 20s with your support, and a renewed focus on ensuring the sustainability of quality programs and services at our Library. See Library's areas of focus for 2020.
