More details to come!!



Thanks to the incredible generosity of our supporters, our 5th annual Imagine Gala & Auction raised  $125,425 to support the Library's critical literacy programs including Ready to Read, Take 20 and Read, Library to You, Storybook Walk and facility improvements. We are especially excited about the Fund A Need appeal for this year that raised $45,203 and will help deploy the very first Interactive Early Literacy Space for the Library!

250 guests and volunteers joined us for a Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe themed celebration complete with Jadis the White Witch, Mr. Tumnus, the Pevensie children and many of their friends. What a wonderful night for the Library Foundation, our sponsors, donors and supporters!

Annual Giving Appeal
This year the Library Foundation’s specific Fund A Need campaign is to raise money to support future interactive early literacy spaces in our libraries. These spaces are not just for literacy development, but also encourage social and emotional growth for the youngest members of our community.
