Wright Library Capital Campaign Reached its Goal

Thanks to the generosity of private donors, Wright Memorial Public Library has exceeded its $1.5 million capital campaign fundraising goal.

The Making A Difference Capital Campaign sought private donations to support the library’s building repair and improvement project, which began in January.

Total gifts and pledges to date are $1,527,605. This philanthropic support will help the Wright Library reimagine and enhance portions of the building into 21st-century spaces for children, teens, and the community.

“We are humbled and thrilled by the support of these donors to invest in the library and community’s future,” said Library Director Kristi Hale.The campaign began in 2020 with a $500,000 lead gift from David L. Flory. “Every gift, no matter the size, made a significant impact on this project,” Hale said.

To make a contribution, contact Director Kristi Hale, or give online at the Dayton Foundation >>  All gifts over $30,000 will be recognized in the new space.
