Buy a Brick, Build a Library

Your Library Is Going Places!

Buy a Brick, Build a Library

After years of careful planning, community input and phased construction, the new, enhanced Claverack Free Library and community center is projected to open in late fall 2019. So much more than a place to lend books, this new library center will connect our community through a vast range
of cultural, educational and social events and occasions.

For each contribution of $100, a brick will be inscribed as you direct, with proceeds to go to the children’s room at the new library. Bricks will be placed along the sidewalk of the main entrance to assure that your family, friends and loved ones have a lasting presence at the new Claverack Free Library and community center. Makes a great gift!

Every donation is deeply appreciated and brings the opening of the new Claverack Free Library and community center that much closer to completion. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the library.


The order form for Adopt-A-Brick is available here.
