Mitchell is among the charter members of the Southard Society, which recognizes people contributing $5,000 or more in planned estate gifts to the library. Southard Society members will be part of the major donor wall at the new library.
Estate gifts to the ALPL Foundation that are not otherwise designated will support the endowment for the library, helping it become more financially self-sufficient and less dependent on taxpayer support.
“An estate gift is a very easy way that people can provide support to the Athens-Limestone Public Library, and assure that our citizens always have a library that fits the needs of the community,” Laurita said. “We are honored that Ed Mitchell chose to support our library with this generous gift.”
