Donation to Jackson County library makes a perfect gift

Written by 

Library lovers and history buffs from all over have a singular opportunity this year to combine giving Christmas presents to family and friends and giving to their community.

The Jackson County Library capital campaign is still under way, and co-chair Mary Otto Selzer says this is the perfect time to give.

“This is the time of year when we are thinking about our loved ones and dear friends and want them to know we care. A donation to the Jackson County Public Library Complex capital campaign in honor of someone shows a special kind of thoughtfulness. The honored person will receive a card letting him or her know of your Christmas gift donation in their honor,” said Selzer.

According to Selzer, the capital campaign has raised over $1.8 million from over 1,000 individual contributors.

To donate in someone’s name, or in your own name, drop off the donation at the Friends of the Library Used Book Store or the current library, both on Main Street in Sylva, or mail the donation to Friends of the Library, P. O. Box 825, Sylva, N.C., 28779. For further information call Mary Otto Selzer at 828.507.0476.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
