Gifts to the Friends of the Library

The library operates primarily through the endowment set up by David A. Howe and the generosity of patrons. About twenty-five percent of the library's budget comes from local tax dollars, in contrast to most public libraries which receive the majority of their funds through taxes.

Please contact the library if you have questions regarding gifts or donations.

All donations are tax deductible.
