The Ballston Spa Library Board of Trustees, in conjunction with the Friends of the Ballston Spa Public Library, invite you to attend our library’s Capital Campaign Kickoff Event, Funding Our Future – Brick by Brick and Book by Book, on Thursday, December 8th at 6:00pm. This event will be held in the Community Room of the library located at 21 Milton Ave. Ballston Spa, NY.
We hope the Kickoff Event will raise awareness, generate excitement, and enhance funding for our $3 million-dollar renovation project. This bold renovation project is part of our library’s Master Plan, which was developed with considerable community input. The project includes: a reading room and local history room addition; enhanced children’s room and teen space, more spaces for small meetings; community room upgrades and overall improvements in accessibility, technology, and sustainability.
The Ballston Spa Public Library chartered in 1893 serves the Village of Ballston Spa residents, those residing in the Ballston Spa School District, and families in the Town of Milton and Ballston who are in easy proximity to the Village. We are proud of the fact that our library is the most visited public space in the Village, and that it continued to serve our community throughout the pandemic.
The library hosts many public meetings, book clubs, story times, community education programs, teen, and children’s events. However, our spaces are outdated and in need of updating and redesigning. This renovation project will enable the library to host more public events with partner groups and will allow us to do simultaneous programming in our proposed enhanced space.
Thank you for considering our invitation to join us for our Capital Campaign Kickoff Event where you will be able to see and discuss our plans for the library while enjoying lite refreshments with us.
