In these times of tight town budgets, your tax deductible contribution helps to maintain your public Library’s programs and helps to strengthen the fabric of our community. Membership contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Because we are a 501(c) 3 organization, many companies match their employees’ gifts to the Friends. Membership year is January 1 to December 31, 2024.
