Library 'High $5' campaign raises $14,136 Library supporters donated $14,136.10 to Great River Regional Library (GRRL) during the March High $5 fundraising campaign. Donations to the High $5 cam- paign are used to support library services. Twenty-two of the 32 branches in GRRL mete donations goal based on two percent of their March checkout sessions. All of those branches will receive 50 per- cent of the funds raised at their branches to meet local needs such as Summer Reading Program prize incentives, program per- formers, and furnishings.. That amount will range from $28.50 in Royalton to $1,173 in St. Cloud for a total of $5,975. The remaining funds raised in High $5 may be used by the regional library sys- tem for books, databases, or other needs. The Stickney Crossing Library in Clearwater had the highest overall response rate at 12.63 per- cent. The Delano Public Library "had the highest number of actual gifts, with 184. St. Cloud raised the highest dollar amount, "totaling $2,346.75. The High $5 campaign was ini- tiated in 2005 as an easy and inex- pensive way for library users to show their support. The $5 was chosen as the entry-level donation because users on average checked out five items per visit.
