Library Legacy Circle

Ensure the promise of the library will continue for generations to come.

Leave Your Library a Legacy

Libraries are built on a promise – a promise that our lives will all be better if we share and benefit from easy access to the power of inspiration, information, and ideas. It helps us all participate even more fully in life. By making a planned gift, you pay forward the idea that we can continue to build a better community if we keep learning and engaging with each other.
