The Library the Community Builds Together

“Someday”, we said for years and years; “someday, Irondequoit will have the library we deserve.” Well, someday is TODAY! The new Irondequoit Public Library will open late summer 2015.

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 in the Monroe County Library System. 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, which are not as long-lived as the building. So, to purchase what the library needs to serve toddlers, seniors, and everyone in between, we need you to help fill this shopping list:

  • 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 a gift of one thousand dollars, 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 donate online now, make your pledge online, or download the pledge form to mail in with a check. Present and future residents of our town thank you for your generosity. We can’t wait to see you in the library our community builds...together!
