We have only two days left to meet the State challenge match of $11,000 for the CSI Library. So far, our appeal has raised about $5,000. I know that these are difficult times for us, but the Library is an invaluable resource for all of us and it would be a shame not to meet the State’s match challenge this year.

While the $11,000 goal seems like a major hurdle to clear, if we all rally together, it won’t be so hard to overcome. I am pledging to match any gift of $250 that is postmarked Wednesday, Mar. 30 or Thursday, Mar. 31. Of course, any amount will help us cross the finish line to the $11,000.

Let’s all garner our support of the facility that provides critical access to the world of knowledge to our community of students, faculty, alumni, and staff.

I look forward to your generous participation in this year’s Library Appeal. For those of you who have given already, thank you, and please pass this on to someone who will consider a donation.
