Our Membership Appeal
The Library is not fully-funded by public funds and thus must rely on Appeals, other fund-raising and grants to supplement its budget. If you support the Library’s and Trustees’ annual village-wide President’s Appeal for contributions, we applaud you! That appeal, however, does not include The Friends Annual Membership Appeal. We assist the Library and the Trustees through our various volunteer fund-raising efforts as described below. Our missions are consistent and we often partner in our efforts. Our independent Friends’ Membership Appeal generates contributions from members that will equate to 10% - 20% of the funds we are committed to providing to the Library during a fiscal year.
