New Year Giving

Together we have raised thousands of dollars for the Library Commons, but we can’t stop now! Our task is to fund the furnishing of the new library to make it efficient, welcoming, and up-to-date. We need your help because hundreds of families and local businesses use the library weekly to share values, strengthen learning, and learn new skills. Could you help us achieve that goal? 

Please join us by making your gift on our online donation form or with this mail-in donation form so we can build something unique and needed for our community!

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes, Suzanne Butler, Foundation President
