Generous gifts to Love the Library campaign honour Betty Wakefield

On the steps of the Picton Branch Library are Don Wakefield, Chair of the Library Board Devon Jones, and Alexandra Bake, fundraising chair, with fundraising mascot Chico.

A $10,000 gift from Don Wakefield is a second generous donation to the Prince Edward County Picton Library expansion project, in memory of his wife Betty Wakefield. A room in the renewed building will be named in Betty’s memory.

The Love Your Library campaign to improve and expand the 110-year-old Carnegie building is nearing $2 million of its $2.8 million goal.

A modern extension will double the size of the library while maintaining its heritage character. Plans include an expanded collection, performance arts space with non-profit rental options, a new lecture theatre with assistive technologies, an enlarged children’s area and a dedicated Makerspace Room for STEM learning and lifelong enrichment.

With the expansion, more than 3,400 visitors each month can also expect flexible quiet work spaces and meeting room rentals, accessible public washrooms, comfortable chairs, good lighting and quiet spaces.
