Dear Greenburgh Citizen,

Will you help the Library? Among the casualties of the bad economy and tax cap was the library budget. The Town Board made significant cuts to the Library’s budget. The Library’s budget was cut by $570,000. In order to keep the Library open six days per week the Library Trustees decided to ELIMINATE the materials budget. That means there are no new books, DVDs, audio books, or music CDs, being purchased for the Greenburgh Public Library.

Please help the Library purchase the in demand books. If you make out a check for $25 to the Friends of the Greenburgh Library they can purchase a new popular book. If you advise the library of the book you would like them to purchase with your $25 donation – they will try to accommodate your request.

If you have the time to volunteer to help the library with their fundraising campaign please advise. We can use your help! We can turn the budget crisis into a positive by organizing an aggressive fundraising campaign to raise private dollars for the library. I plan to devote substantial time during the coming year to help the library organize a major fundraising initiative. We have a beautiful library and want it to be the best!
