Annual Fund image

When you make a gift to the Curtis Annual Fund, you directly support our community of readers by helping to purchase thousands of new books, e-books, magazines, DVDs and digital materials not only for you, but for people of every age and interest.

New this year, Annual Fund gifts will also support The Library of Things, a new lending program unique to Curtis that features a variety of craft/garden/kitchen/home kits and helpful items that you can try before you buy in the spirit of a sharing, sustainable community.

Taxes support building upkeep and professional staff. But it’s you and your neighbors who support all the new books and digital materials that keep Curtis current.

Thank you for your special gift to the Curtis Library Annual Fund.

Our Annual Campaign runs October through February, closing out any and all gifts by June 30.
