The Friends endowment program is your best way to contribute tax-deductible dollars that will provide long-rang reoccurring benefits to the library.


The investment income generated by the endowment funds is used year after year to help the library keep current in technology and special collections as well as making available a wide range of programs that appeal to the entire family.

Your deductible gift can be targeted in accordance with your areas of interest and range from adopt-a-book to the popular single premium annuity life insurance policy that will provide you with structured income for life with the ultimate benefit accruing to the Friends endowment.


Contact us at 497-2135 and ask to receive our endowment information package that will more fully explain this important program.
