Annual Appeal

The library has begun its 2014 annual appeal. Please consider making a contribution (your contribution can be doubled if your worksite offers a matching gift program). It is our goal to raise $20,000. I know it can be done. It will take all of us. I promise, your tax deductible contribution will be returned to you through increased collections, more and diversified programming, and improved communication with you.

Thank You, Addie Ciannella, Library Director
