2019 Annual Appeal Begins

November is the month when the Friends of the Madison Public Library reach out to the community in the form of our Annual Appeal. Your generosity allows us to fulfill requests for programs and materials not covered by the regular Library budget.

Your contributions have helped to make the Library an outstanding one. In addition to attending new and exciting programs for children, teens and adults, you now have access to quality entertainment and education through its digital resources such as Kanopy, Hoopla and rb digital. You can also access the Madison Eagle Archive from your own home.

During this past year, thanks to your generosity, the Friends were able to contribute over $50,000 to programming and to the collection, purchase new furniture for the teen area and continue to fund the Museum Pass Program to 15 local and New York City museums, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

From proceeds of the Annual Appeal, Gala Benefit (March 28, 2020) and Minicourses, we are also able to designate funds for special projects. Other programs funded by the Friends include the Summer Reading Club, the Summer Seminar Series (with the Senior Center) and the bi-monthly newsletter.

As always, we extend our gratitude for your continued support and generosity. Look for our Annual Appeal letter in your mail during November.

Envelopes for the Annual Appeal will also be available at the front desk of the library.
