This year the Meridian Library Foundation is raising funds to purchase Early Literacy & Sensory Room Installations at Meridian Library's new Orchard Park branch (anticipated opening early 2023). While the Plant Facility Levy Funds  contribute to the construction of the space, they do not cover the collections, technology, or material resources. Without outside funding from grants and donations, those resources are limited to what the library can afford through its general operating budget. When you donate to the Meridian Library Foundation, you are directly supporting these enhancements and increasing the value of the library services to your community.

While the current library budget can focus on construction of the space, an additional $62,163 is needed to fill the Sensory Room & Early Learning spaces with learning panels, reading havens, fiber optic curtains, and other digital learning & calming installations.
