Project Focus Area:Education Icon
Approved by Board of Directors: July 2009
SECU Foundation provided a challenge grant to the Friends of the Jackson County Main Library to assist with the Capital Campaign for the Jackson County Public Library Complex, providing needed library services to several Western North Carolina counties.
For the project, the SECU Foundation partnered with the non-profit Friends of the Jackson County Main Library to provide services to citizens in Macon, Swain and Haywood Counties. The complex will also benefit the local university and community college and other regional libraries. The challenge grant allowed the Friends of the Library the opportunity to complete their fundraising goal needed to construct the 20,000 square foot library, which is located next to the restored historical Jackson County Courthouse, in Sylva.
