Support the Bixby Memorial Library with a TAX DEDUCTIBLE online donation today!

Dear Bixby Supporter,

The Bixby: It’s All About Our Community
The Bixby Memorial Free Library is taking great strides towards our goal of making the library the heart of our five-town community. We’ve hired a new director, whose passion is community engagement in rural areas. Our new adult services librarian comes to the library with a dedication to library programming and outreach for the under served. Our work with preschool and school-aged children serves young members of all five towns in a variety of locations. Closer to home, our newly renovated Community Room provides a gathering space for movie buffs, book lovers, musicians, and more. Our new gallery walls feature vibrant works by local artists, and presenters provide education and entertainment for all ages.

We’re Focused On You
In the year ahead, our focus on community will provide increased programming and outreach, bringing residents of the five towns together to teach, engage, and inspire each other. The creation of a dedicated play space in the Children’s Room will reflect our dedication to early childhood learning. And, of course, we will maintain the exemplary quality of books and services that the Bixby is known for.

We Couldn’t Do It Without You
A quarter of our operating budget comes from the generosity of donors like you. Here are some of the ways your tax-deductible donation can help:
$25 will provide craft supplies for our weekly children’s story hour
$50 will assist in providing free e-books and audiobooks through Overdrive
$150 allows us to provide free and reduced rate passes to museums and parks throughout Vermont
$500 will help us continue to provide free internet services to the public
$1000 will purchase more than 30 brand new books for our adult collection
Heartfelt thanks for your support,

Masha Harris
Director

Paula Moore
Board President
