You wouldn't be able to find your Rs from your elbows in a library without shelvers! Your contribution will be met with a massive "Cheers mate!" yelped into the vault to forever be immortalised in the walls!
And a collection would be rendered useless without patrons to fondle it! For your contribution your name will be added to a special commemorative laminate (because we don't do bronze plaques in Seattle) kept forever on the wall of the vault!
An archivist without an assistant would be like a tiny dog off it's leash in park full of rottweilers: utterly without hope. For your contribution you will receive your own printed copy of the original design poster from the fundraiser (U.S. only), your name immortalised in the laminate and a personalised thank you postcard from the archivist herself!
For your contribution you will receive everything from above PLUS a tour of the archive while you enjoy a specially-made batch of cookies OR Italian doughnuts from an ancient family recipe! (And who said librarians could't bake? Oh, no one. Nevermind.)
No one likes a library without proper management: you end up with books growing beards and librarians fighting each other with date stamps. For your generous contribution you will receive all of the above as well as tickets to the next archive film screening at the Northwest Film Forum!
Top banana ahoy! As well as all of the above, you will receive: a private screening of the 16mm film of your choice from the vault!
Now we're talking. For the uppermost echelon of contributionality (artistic license) you can win a dinner with the archivist on beautiful Bainbridge Island in Washington! All palates catered for!
