"I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture, and our concern for the future, can all be tested by how well we support our libraries." -Carl Sagan

With its vibrant children’s space, dedicated teen area, expansive adult fiction and reference rooms, and flexible meeting spaces, our library will be a gem for the community. To keep the tax impact low, the town is borrowing only for the cost of the structure, not for furnishings and equipment such as computers and seating. Your donation will help us purchase what the library needs to serve toddlers, seniors, and everyone in between, such as:

  • audio/visual equipment
  • children’s educational toys and games
  • the latest computers and printers
  • displays for local history materials
  • smart boards and other technology for meeting rooms
  • comfortable seating for the library and outdoor courtyard
  • automated check-out systems
  • technology for inter-generational programs

This is your chance to be part of this stunning change on our beautiful town campus. Any amount is appreciated. Whatever you can give goes directly toward filling our building with necessary furnishings and equipment.

For gifts between $100-999, donors can have their name engraved on a wooden book spine:

  • $100-299 are poplar wood at 8.75”
  • $300-499 are cherry wood at 9.25”
  • $500-999 are walnut wood at 9.75” 

For a gift of $1,000 or more, you may choose to have your name inscribed on a leaf attached to our Giving Tree designed by local sculptor Craig Wilson.

Gifts can also be made in memory or in honor of family and friends, or to recognize special occasions, an organization, or a special achievement. All donors giving at any level will have their names recorded in a donation book. Please leave this blank if you wish to remain anonymous.
