Redstone is donating $2.5 million to the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library to help build 3 new libraries!

We are happy to announce a $2.5 million donation to the Huntsville Library Foundation, the largest single donation the library system has ever received. The funds will be used for the library’s capital campaign to build and furnish three new libraries in North Huntsville, South Huntsville and Madison.

Joe Newberry, RFCU President and CEO, said the donation further strengthens the ties Redstone has with the communities it has served over the past 65 years – and sets the tone for service over the next 65 years.

“We search out those opportunities where Redstone can be a catalyst for positive change in the community,’’ Newberry said. “This is definitely such a project. Libraries encourage the adoption of technology and lifelong learning. Those goals are very much in line with our credit union’s goals.’’

“We are one library with 12 branches, and we are equally passionate about all of the communities we serve, as are our donors like Redstone Federal Credit Union,’’ said Laurel Best, Executive Director, Huntsville-Madison County Public Library. We are thrilled to receive such a generous donation, and we look forward to bringing state-of-the-art 21st century libraries to Huntsville and Madison.’’   

Huntsville Library Foundation Chair Christina Tabereaux said, “With this gift, RFCU is demonstrating its dedication to making the future brighter and more successful through literacy.’’
