The Sioux Center Public Library has already received several substantial donations as they fundraise for their planned building project. They are celebrating more than $200,000 in donations and pledges for the project.

  • Pella Corporation: $50,000
  • American State Bank: $50,000
  • Sioux Center Kiwanis  $30,000
  • Dordt University:  $10,000

Other donors include:

  • Kroese & Kroese
  • DGR Engineering
  • James & Florence Mahaffy
  • Sam & Megan Fopma
  • David & Charlene Krahling
  • Josh & Alicia Bowar
  • Scott & April Lundquist

 “We are overwhelmed by the donations -both large and small - that people and businesses have given to us to help make our renovation happen,” Library Director Becky Bilby said. “We know our community will see this as valuable and we are encouraged by their support.  These donations are helping to make this dream a reality.“  

Preparation for the project continues, and the library is continuing to work with area businesses and fundraising for this project, and they wanted to acknowledge contributions received thus far.

“We extend our deepest gratitude to the following contributors for their significant donations,” Bilby said. “We are truly grateful for a community that comes behind us to support our vision and mission for the library to ‘inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities by bringing diverse people, information, and ideas together.’”
