Let's Talk Results


In a world of increased connectivity, where news, music, videos and books can be accessed in the palm of your hand, how do you persuade a community to support a library expansion? This was the challenge faced by the leadership of the Knoxville Public Library. The need for an expansion was clear. Despite having more active users, the Knoxville Public Library was half the size of libraries in similarly sized communities. In addition, the community meeting space often had to turn groups away because of limited size and increased demand. The library secured a $2.5 million bond to help pay for a nearly $4.5 million expansion and renovation project. With limited fundraising experience, however, the remaining funds posed a significant challenge.

In speaking with members of the community for the feasibility study, conducted by AMPERAGE fundraising consultants, it became clear the important role the library played in this blue-collar town of about 7,000 residents. The study concluded that, although the pool of leadership gift prospects was small, potential donors were supportive of the project. AMPERAGE recommended moving forward with a $1.75 million campaign.

With the help of a strong case and a group of committed volunteers, the Knoxville Public Library broke ground on its expansion in spring 2018, having successfully raised $1.85 million.
