Support Your Libraries

support1There are many ways to support your libraries!

  • Volunteer your time
  • Make a tax-deductible donation to Friends (click on the Friends of EHFPL & Friends of Rathbun pages)
  • Run for the Board of Trustees
  • Join a Board committee (as needed basis, determined by the Board)
  • AND…You can also now donate to the library system instead of just one branch

We have set up a Special Revenue Fund maintained by the Town; all revenues promote the library system’s mission and cannot be used for any other purpose. Direct contributions, memorial contributions, bequests, grants, and corporate contributions all benefit this fund, which will be used for programs and services not budgeted by the Town. For example, a memorial garden was recently established using funds donated in a deceased Friend’s name. We will use this fund to:

  • Kick start innovative programs
  • Provide seed money for fundraising projects
  • Meet critical needs of the library system for which Town funds are not available

To make your tax-deductible contribution to this fund, please make your check payable to “East Haddam Library System” and drop it off (or mail it in) to the Library Director (Mike Gilroy) at either branch. We will mail you a receipt for tax purposes. No gift is too small (or too large!).
