Excerpt from Daily Tribune, 28 Nov 2011
"...The U.S. Department of Agriculture/Rural Development has denied a request from the nonprofit [Friends of the HBFL] for $1.5 million in financial assistance to help build the new library. ...The federal agency indicated tentative approval for a low-interest loan and grant, pending a matching contribution. ...However, the Friends fell far short of their financial goals and USDA withdrew the loan/grant offer..."
The Friends are committed to the new library project. We will continue to promote fundraisers
for the project and with community support, eventually will be able to
provide Burnet with a new library building at no cost to taxpayers.
We need your support!
