Donate NowOur Promise to Supporters of The Library

At The Library it is most important to us that your gift is used in the manner you envision when you make it. As part of that commitment, The Library subscribes to a Donor Bill of Rights. We take steps to report to you the impact your gift has made through personal communication where possible, as well as a donor newsletter, library website, an annual report and other means.

People need libraries most when the economy is struggling. A difficult economy also makes deciding where to invest your charitable giving even more challenging. Giving is deeply personal and, studies have shown, deeply rewarding to both the donor and the institution receiving the support.  Our promise to you is that your gift to The Library will be used to positively impact your local community by furthering both The Library’s mission and your charitable vision.
