progress toward fundraising goal

The Library has launched its annual 2020/2021 fund drive!
This year’s goal of $26,000 will allow the Library to creatively meet the needs of the community in all the ways we are able, including expanding virtual programs and services, providing customized access to the collections through distanced services such as Personalized Patio Pick-Up, and creating packs for families, like the Grab & Go Kits, that can be used at home. We are dedicated to supporting underserved and isolated populations in the service area with new technology during regular outreach visits. We can only secure the longevity of these efforts with the help of our generous donors. The current donations total just over $14,500.

For your convenience, there are several ways to donate to the Library's annual fund drive. You can donate online with a credit card through the Library’s Donate Link, you can mail a check to the Library, or drop money in an envelope in our outdoor book drop. If you would like to be recognized, please provide your contact information.

For information about all of the Library’s current services, please visit our Services Page. For the most updated information about our digital initiatives, please subscribe to our eNewsletter and visit the Events Calendar to register for our virtual programming.
