Right now a child is hard at work practicing a piano piece for their upcoming recital. The question is, where will they perform this piece? The Carnegie Room at the Library provides such a place, opening its doors for community events like recitals, youth theatre workshops, comedians, and viewings of National Theatre Live and Metropolitan Opera.
Through funds raised during the Challenge for Charities in previous years, the Carnegie Room received an audio-visual boost with a new high tech sound and projection system. In addition, a beautiful gazebo was constructed on the library lawn through donations and the Challenge matching funds.
Between viewings of Downton Abbey in the Carnegie, and the enjoyment of a comfortable reading spot under the shade of the gazebo, the library has gained more than just structural improvements. It has gained spaces for the community to come together and enrich their lives. Without you we could never have achieved so much.
This year, our goal is to raise over $10,000 through the Challenge for Charities to continue renovation of the Carnegie Room. A hardwood stage, a true working curtain, and stage lighting would take this historic room to the next level.
With your help, this is possible.
