Annual gifts of any amount sustain the work of the Library.
Ongoing support is essential, because annual gifts are spent each year.They make it possible for staff to develop, plan, and execute programs and services targeted to our strategic plan. Gifts may be made at any time during the year, not just during our annual appeal. Please be sure to indicate your gift's frequency of recurrence when making your donation.
Gifts $499 and under are recognized on our Honor Roll. Significant donations of $500 or more (cumulative) are gratefully acknowledged on the Library's donor recognition wall, located on the main floor of the Library.
