Foundation Stories

Authors Wyatt Townley and Roderick Townley

It was a huge success! Our third annual Library Lets Loose fundraising event was held September 29.  Nearly 500 Library lovers (including our cover photo stars –local authors Wyatt and Roderick Townley) attended this festive fundraiser that featured unique and creative experiences, scrumptious food and drink pairings – and local music, artists, performers and creators. And, more than $120,000 was raised! View a fun photo gallery here!

A big shout out to our generous 2018 sponsors. We couldn’t have done this without your help!

Proceeds from the event benefit the Foundation which helps support Library programs and the collection. We provide funding for programs that go above and beyond what you would expect from a Library! Early childhood literacy, Summer Reading, Homework Help, teen writing programs and civic engagement are just a few of the many programs that make a difference in our community.
