The Library Circle

We express our sincere gratitude and recognize those donors who are committed to sustaining the Library’s long-term future.

The Library Circle recognizes supporters who include the Library in their will or estate plan, establish a named endowment or contribute $1,000 or more to the Library’s endowment. Library Circle members are recognized each year at an annual reception, included in a membership list, enjoy access to special programming and receive a keepsake bookmark. For members who create a named endowment, the Library offers a variety of additional recognition opportunities including permanent recognition.

Join the Library Circle and the many others who, like you, understand the lasting value of the Library and the importance of sustaining its future.

For more information about the Library Circle, contact Anne Lee at 412.622.6276 or
