ORL Endowment Established at the Shuswap Community Foundation

The ORL is pleased to announce it has contributed seed funding in the amount of $5,000 to establish a permanent endowment with the Shuswap Community Foundation (SCF). When the endowment reaches $10,000 income earned will be used to support library services and programs in the Shuswap region. The Foundation and the ORL look forward to working with donors who would like to contribute to the fund.

Currently there are five ORL locations in the Shuswap: the Salmon Arm Branch in Piccadilly Mall, the South Shuswap Branch in Blind Bay, the North Shuswap Branch in Scotch Creek, the Silver Creek Branch and the Sicamous Branch.
