Be a Library Superhero!

Dad at Tea PartyOur committed staff, the hundreds of generous volunteers, the moms and dads helping their children with books and computers, the kids learning to read, they are all superheroes to us. But the other superhero in the picture is – YOU, our generous donor.
As you plan your year-end giving will you please consider using your superhero powers to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Library?  We depend on charitable contributions to cover 50% of our operating budget, which includes salaries, building maintenance, library materials and community outreach. Our goal for this annual appeal is $50,000. Please help us to get there. Click here to donate or send your check to the library at PO Box 669, Hillsdale, NY 12529.
