ALA Libraries Transforming Communities Grant Prompts Great Discussion

Posted on: October 19th, 2021

SBL would like to thank all of the participants that took place in our George Washington Rules of Civility discussion.  Meeting Oct 14, we had a great discussion!  We talked about manners, civility, rules to live by and most important, the role of respect.  In today’s world, we have a lot of fear.  But having civil discussions can make the world a better place.  

Giving Opportunity

Posted on: April 26th, 2016

Do you remember the excitement you felt when you entered a library for the first time? The possibilities it offered seemed endless. In the words of Robert Putnam, “People may go to the library looking mainly for information, but they find each other there.” Our library is no different, readers discuss books and lives in various bookclubs, new moms connect at baby story-times, elderly people, often facing difficult life transitions, attend events and find that they make new friends, and knitters gather to teach and support one another.

We are fortunate that our Town and State have provided funding to repair, update and expand the Library building this year. Now the Board extends an invitation to all to become part of this project by providing the funds needed to improve the furnishings that will be used within the new and refurbished space.

Any and every contribution will be greatly appreciated. Please click here for a schedule of gifting opportunities and an easily printable form if you would like to select one or more of the gifting opportunities listed. A wall plaque to name contributors of amounts over $1,000 will be our way to thank you and recognize your support to the Library or to memorialize a loved one. Your contribution will help to make the space warm and inviting for our Community for many years to come. Thank you again,
