Subject:  Locally Growin’ Campaign Begins March 2


St. Cloud, MN – February 2020: Spring is here! “Locally Growin’,” the fundraising campaign at Great River Regional Library (GRRL) begins on Monday, March 2, 2020.

Our Locally Growin’ campaign keeps donations 100 percent within the branch library of the donor’s choosing. Each library selects a specific “wish” item or program and a campaign goal. Over $20,000 was raised around the region in 2019 to support a wide variety of goals. Each library’s goal is unique and focuses on their community interests and needs. A few exciting wishes that libraries are raising money for this year include the following:

  • Sauk Centre’s wish to hold a program by The Raptor Center (of the University of Minnesota).
  • Royalton’s wish to add ukuleles to their collection.
  • Grey Eagle’s wish to add a chess and checker table to their library.
  • Cokato’s wish to have library book bags for their 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.

These are just a few of our libraries’ wishes. Stop by to learn what is growin’ at your local library!
