Donate to the "Friends of the Library" Summer Reading Building Fund.

Donating to the Building Fund helps “The Friends of the Library” purchase materials for our expansion project not covered by the project budget. Donations can be easily made via the Friends’ PayPal link above or at the library by cash or check. This tax-deductible donation automatically qualifies donors as “Friends of the Library,” and will be listed on our webpage incrementally, unless the donor requests to remain anonymous.
Donations, while appreciated, are not required to participate in the Summer Reading Program.
