NEIGHBORHOOD FEATURE: A Gold Crown Clubhouse For Edgewater Kids

The Jefferson County Library Foundation and Jefferson County Public Library are offering naming rights for Jeffco residents “who wish to help provide 21st-century library services in Edgewater’s new library, while ensuring their generosity is recognized for years to come.”

In other words, if you are willing to make a generous donation, you may get to name parts of the new 10,000-square-foot library  being built as part of the City of Edgewater’s new Civic Center.

According to a release from the Library Foundation, “a range of naming opportunities are available for individuals, families, organizations, foundations and corporations, enabling donors to pay tribute to their relationship with Jefferson County Public Library and the Edgewater Library or to honor and recognize a milestone event or someone special in their lives.”

Naming opportunities range in value from $5,000 to $50,000 and give donors the opportunity to name major areas and service offerings in the library.

“Neighborhood Gazette Book Nook” has a nice ring to it, huh?

Name recognition opportunities range from $1,000 to $5,000 and give donors recognition for providing access to updated technology and other library amenities.

Individual donations are welcome and will be recognized on a special donor wall inside the library.

Construction on the new library began in March, with the grand opening of the new library and Civic Center planned for the fall.

For more information on the naming program, contact Rebecca Winning at 303-275-2203 or Rebecca.winning@jeffcolibrary.org, or visit jeffcolibrary.org/Edgewater-project-.
