The residents of Tiverton recently passed the Tiverton Town bond referendum for $7 million a new public Library! http://www.eastbayri.com/news/2011/nov/08/tiverton-library-financial-town-referendum-both-wi/ An enormous number of volunteers worked to inform the public about the value of investing in a new library, resulting in approval at the polls, despite the difficult economic climate and the concern about taxes.
The Library Foundation, Trustees, Staff, Building Committee and Friends recently acknowledged the Community Partnership developed by John Kinnane of the Kinnane Group & Michael McNally of McNally Associates for being one of the earliest supporters of the project to build a modern, energy efficient library and community hub.
The Kinnane Group continues to keep this committment to the new library with its "Community Partnership" program. It is very simple and it's a way for us to provide an added client benefit while helping to raise monies for the new library. Buy or sell your property in Tiverton through the Kinnane Group and we will provide a charitable contribution in your name to the Tiverton Library Foundation's new building fund that is matched dollar for dollar by Citizens-Union Savings Bank.
"Charity begins at home", says Kinnane, "and this project couldn't hit any closer to home for us". The Kinnane Group was the exclusive broker involved in a sale to Citizens-Union Savings Bank a few years ago when Gilbert & Jeanette Guimond sold their family-owned Guimond Farms property and also brokered the adjacent land transaction from Citizens-Union Savings Bank to the Friends of Tiverton Library. The bank has established a beautiful branch banking and insurance facility at Bliss Four Corners and Tiverton Library Foundation has now embarked on their plans to build a brand new 30,000 sq. ft. state of the art public library facility that will become a town treasure for many years to come.
