David Doedtman, President and CEO of Washington Savings Bank noted, "As a bank focused on serving local individuals, families and businesses, Washington Savings Bank supports organizations that invest in programs benefiting the local community. A thriving library makes the Effingham area a better place to live and work for people of all ages. We are proud to support the capital campaign and invite others to help the library reach its goals."

Amanda McKay, Library Director stated, "We are extremely grateful to Washington Savings Bank for making this sizeable donation and recognizing the importance of the library to the Effingham community and this community's need for a more modern library. We look forward to moving into our new building by late 2015."
