Support the Bixby Memorial Library with a TAX DEDUCTIBLE online donation today!
New! Annual Appeal 2020: In mid November, the Bixby Memorial Library launched our annual appeal fundraising campaign. As typical fundraising opportunities like the Bixby Gala have been postponed due to Covid- 19, our annual appeal is even more essential to the continued success of the Bixby Library.
Donations to the Annual Appeal are tax-exempt. All financial support goes directly to the programs and offerings that make the Bixby Library a heart of our communities. Donations may go to purchasing crafts for a take home project for our younger patrons; or they may go to a partnership that brings a local expert to the Bixby to share their skillset with our community. However small or large, our work relies on contributions from our friends and neighbors, and we are so appreciative of all the support our community gives to us.
For more information on the Annual Appeal, please check out our donation letter here.
Then, please consider making a donation through our PayPal account. We are also accepting donations via check or cash. Please make out checks to the “Bixby Memorial Free Library” and include a note indicating that this donation is for the “Annual Appeal 2020”. Checks or cash can be mailed to 258 Main Street, Vergennes VT or dropped off in one of the two book drop boxes at the Bixby. Please include a return address on your donation so that we can send a tax-exempt receipt and acknowledgement of your donation for tax records.
Please consider completing the form linked here to provide feedback on collections, programs and more to the staff at the Bixby Library.
General Donations: While our physical space is closed the Bixby has added multiple new virtual programs, more options for digital checkouts like hoopla. Curbside pick up of items is available on Tue, Thurs and Sat. We have created more avenues for connection like through our live chat option on our website and we gave away over 850 books, crafts, resource materials, prizes and even toilet paper to our community. We have upgraded our internet to get a better free WIFI signal out to our outdoor space. We are not done but we need your support. We have cut our spending and cannot hold our yearly Gala, which brings in around 15% of our yearly budget. Now is a great time to support your favorite non-profits, who are doing essential work to help communities stay safely at home during this pandemic. As a part of the CARES act there are increased tax benefits to donating to the Bixby, and other organizations like us. Click here for an article about these incentives.
