Poudre River Library Trust
The Poudre River Library Trust is proud to launch An Exceptional Library: The Capital Campaign to Enhance Old Town Library. Library leaders have done a great job of budgeting to fund the basic library remodel and expansion. This $650,000 fundraising campaign will complement the basic remodel and allow for additional features that will transform the project, resulting in the exceptional library that our world-class community deserves. The campaign effort will give forward-looking donors a timely opportunity to donate to four major project areas, and we believe this will offer a unique opportunity for library supporters to invest in creating an exciting and innovative community resource.
We invite you to become a part of the Capital Campaign to Enhance Old Town Library by giving today!
Together we can transform our community with the addition of an innovative, attractive and exciting Old Town Library.

What is the Poudre River Library Trust?
The Poudre River Library Trust, Inc. was founded in 1999 by a dedicated group of library supporters. Trust board members, honorary board members and a small group of other private citizens committed start-up funds to establish the Trust.
The Trust has established a fund to ensure that the Poudre River Public Library District can respond to the increasing demands of an inquisitive, progressive and multicultural information society.
The Poudre River Public Library District Facilities Plan calls for improvements and possible expansion of library facilities, starting with the enhancement/build-down and remodeling of Old Town Library and Library Park.
While the District has taxing authority, the revenue it raises from the annual mill levy are used to support the operational costs of the District's three libraries. Long-term capital needs will require raising additional funds from private, foundation and corporate sources.
The Trust will support and enhance the Library's future facilities construction program.
You Can Contribute to the Community's Future
To this end the Trust is raising funds to support the long-term facilities expansion and enhancement of the Library District.
In a democracy free public libraries are the lifeline to information, education and pleasure for people of all ages and all financial conditions. Information and reading skills are essential to freedom and to a functioning community.
Providing this essential community service is the result of taxpayers' willingness to support our Library District. Our District's Facilities Plan calls for expansion of facilities that are greater than our tax support.
You can assure that our libraries continue to provide needed facilities and a secure future by contributing to the Poudre River Library Trust.
