This evening our volunteers and trustees were intending to post the letter below through local letterboxes. Unfortunately with the Coronavirus epidemic taking over this letter posting has been cancelled.
We need your support. Please please please SHARE this post far and wide. We need to raise £5,000 to save the library from closure. The library operates entirely on a voluntary basis, and has done so since May 2014.
Everyone who works in the library gives up their own time to keep the library running. All of our money comes from donations, fines, printing etc and we receive no other financial support. Every penny we take goes towards paying essential bills such as heating, lighting, security alarm etc.
We currently have a crowdfunder running at www.givey.com/savetaibachlibrary/ Please support us if you can. All donations, no matter how large or small really will make a great difference and allow us to continue providing a valuable service to the communities of Taibach, Goytre and Margam.
If donating via the Givey site, and you are a UK tax payer, you can choose to add Gift Aid to your donation. This will give us 25% extra on top of your donation and it won’t cost you any extra.
You can also donate via Facebook. Or PayPal (visit www.taibachlibrary.org.uk/donate to find out more about this). We also accept cash or cheque. This can be posted to the library/through the letterbox. You can also send us money via bank transfer. Please message us if you’d like our details for this.
If you run a local business or work for a national organisation and you’d like to Sponsor the library for a year please get in touch. In return we can promote your business on all our promotional material.
One final way you can support us is by becoming a member of the Taibach Community Library Charity for just £10 a year. This membership enables you to attend our Annual General Meeting and stand for a position on our board of Trustees. It’s also a great way of showing your support, whether you use the library on a regular basis or if it holds a special place in your heart. Visit www.taibachlibrary.org.uk/charity-membership for details on becoming a member.
Thank you so much in advance for your support. Don’t forget to Share this post. Thank you 👍
