Thank You – A Letter To Our Patrons

Dear Patrons,

We know that you support the William Fogg Library. We hope that you appreciate the efforts that go into preserving the original ambiance of the historic building while incorporating new technologies into the services and programs we provide. Our staff constantly evaluates how we might improve the library experience and keeps our materials and offerings up to date.

To maintain this level of service takes money. The trust that we draw from to cover library operations and maintenance cannot cover all of our needs.  Portions of these funds are restricted, meaning that the main funds can only be used for certain purposes and we are only allowed the use of the interest. The total investment must be kept at a level that will continue to sustain the demands of efficiently operating the library, maintaining the building and grounds, and caring for the Fogg Homestead.  These are the terms of the trust.

The funding we receive allows us to maintain this offering of services and programs, maintain our current hours, and care for the building.

Thank you for your past support of the library. As we enter these challenging times, we ask that you continue to assist us. All contributions in response to this letter will go directly to library operations. Donations in any amount are most welcome and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please watch for our upcoming events and join us for a fun time while helping us raise funds.

Sincerely,
J. Peter Dennett
