Ocean Shores Library Foundation Annual Giving Letter

Whether or not we write our memoirs, in the end we are all remembered for our acts – for the lives we touch and by the causes we advance. In that light, we invite you to consider creating a lasting legacy by including the Ocean Shores Library Foundation (OSLF) in both your long-term plans and in your annual giving.

The OSL Foundation helps fill the gap between what city funding provides and the resources patrons expect. The library receives public support, but private donations strengthen the library’s capacity to innovate and adapt to change. Donor’s collective investments make projects and training possible that benefit everyone and enhance the services the library is able to offer.

For over 50 years, the Ocean Shores Library has been offering services that enrich, inform and strengthen every corner of the community.

From the Foundation’s inception in 2019, gifts have helped expand the library meeting room, provided funding for renovations and upgrades to library facilities and landscaping, and contributed to the creation of the Anneka van Doorninck Outdoor Pavilion. If you’re able, please make a donation to the Ocean Shores Library Foundation so that OSLF may continue helping the library expand to meet growing community needs.

Every library has its stories. Help build ours.
