The Library’s 2016 budget is $39,828 (full breakdown below).
Please help us to raise at least $35,000 toward these costs! In 2015 our appeal raised over $25,000, enabling a standout year of community engagement and productivity, and this year we’d like to do even better.
Each new donor at the $150 level and above will receive a bound copy of our 2015 Library Yearbook, an image-rich description of 2015 activities, partnerships and acquisitions. The Yearbook is available to everyone as a free PDF download.
Your tax-deductible donation benefits every visitor. Since Fall 2015 we have more than doubled our open days and provided services to a record number of visitors. Please help us do more!
Your support can be for any amount whatsoever, even $10. Or:
$100 per year sponsors one shelf plus its affiliated ephemera boxes. • $250 per year sponsors three shelves of books plus affiliated ephemera. • $500 per year also gets a handmade gift from us! • $1,000 per year and up sponsors a section like “Urban Studies” or “Radio History,” and also gets your choice from a special sponsors’ menu, including private film screenings, illustrated talks and handmade gifts. • Any “angels” out there who would like to revolutionize our accessibility by helping us to redevelop this budget to support a staff librarian position, please get directly in touch with us.
