Support the Library
We welcome your support as Donors, Patrons, Volunteers, & Friends of the Library. AND -- We need and rely on your support through Annual Appeal Giving and Endowment & Planned Giving.
While the library is open to all and free for Woodstock residents, it is not, in fact, a public library. NWPL receives only about 40% of its funding from public sources, while the rest derives from fundraising, gifts, grants and its small endowment. Your contribution will help us preserve the library for the next generation. Please give generously.
One of the many ways you can give to the library is by a book donation. Patrons donate money for a book to honor a family member, friend or an educator in categories with special meaning to the loved one. Book donations can also be made for any celebratory reason and are often given to celebrate a birthday. In fact, anniversaries of all types are frequently recognized with book donations including wedding anniversaries and retirements.
One teacher was recognized for conveying her love of learning and developing curiosity among her students for which donations were made to the science collection.
Book purchases can memorialize someone who died; one grandmother was recently remembered by a family gift to augment the library poetry collection.
The giver can choose subject of a book or books including children's books, mysteries or books by a beloved author. Special interests may be recognized such as books about animals or history for example. Donors may also select the preferred type of book; print, large type, audio or digital.
The person will be honored with a bookplate that will remain in the book. Such a gift not only honors a loved one, but also helps our vital town library to prosper. It is a perfect, thoughtful gift "that keeps on giving."
