We all need friends.

Our beautiful new library is open and free of debt. But we still rely on our friends for critical ongoing support — for new acquisitions, better software, and for more innovative and flexible programs that meet the needs of all of our patrons. As we prepare to re-open the library safely, please know that your one-time annual or monthly recurring gift is more important than ever.

Recurring monthly gifts of any denomination allow us to plan with greater confidence. But be assured that every gift counts — whether one-time or recurring. Either can be set up by check or on PayPal. Either will make you a Friend of the Library. And in these unprecedented times, we all need our friends.

Thank you.
