We’re only $10,000 away from our goal of $50,000 - and with your help you can make it. The money we raise helps us continue to provide collections, classes, and technology to enrich the lives of all members of our community. Like all independent libraries in Sussex County, we receive some financial help from government sources – but only one-half of what we need to provide library services.
Your tax-deductible gift will help ensure we remain a hub for self-directed education in our community and continue to provide you with what you have requested.
