Young Rosslander raising money for library renewal

Lily Kompass is raising money for the Rossland Library Renewal project by offering silk screening at the Rossland Mountain Market on Aug. 4.

A young Rosslander could soon have her dream come true.

Lily Kompass, 10, is raising money for the Rossland Library Renewal project by offering silk screening at the Rossland Mountain Market on Thursday, Aug. 4. If she raises enough, she could get her name on a plaque at the library.

“I’m really excited for that,” says Kompass. “I’ve wanted that since I was a kid.”

Those who wish to adorn a t-shirt, pillow case or other piece of fabric with “I [heart] My Library Rossland” need only bring their chosen item and $5 to the market, where Kompass will have the means and know how to transform it.

“Anyone can do it,” says Kompass. “I’m going to bring my screening and my paints, so if anyone is interested please stop by.”

Kompass can also supply a t-shirt or fabric for an extra $5; all proceeds will go to the Rossland Library Renewal.

Asked why the library is important to her, Kompass said, “Because it’s full of books and I really like reading. I’m excited for it to expand and grow, so maybe it’s better for more people. Maybe there’ll be a bigger children’s section or something. That would be fun.”
