The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund, which runs from July 1st to June 30th each year, raises funds to help maintain the building and grounds of both library locations; purchase new books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks and downloadables; update technology; offer community-wide special events; and preserve and enhance the William Munroe Special Collections. 

Contributions to the Annual Fund are accepted at anytime.  Envelopes are available at both Main and Fowler Libraries and mailings are sent throughout the year. 

Give today to help ensure that the Library continues to evolve to meet the needs of our community.
