Donate to WVPL

“Science Teller” Andrew pours fog over audience members for the grand finale of his science story “The Jungles of Jersey.”

     Wasn’t 2014 the nicest summer in years? It wasn’t just the weather that was great.  WVPL had 404 kids and 186 adults register for our summer reading club. We had fun hosting 117 events for families at which 4,502 people attended.

     But now it’s fall…time to fundraise to support these types of library programs. This year we are so excited to have another $10,000 match donor. This donor will match every dollar donated to the library (up to $10,000) from any new donors. So if you haven’t donated before, this is a chance to make your donation go twice as far.

     We’d like to thank our constant supporters, because we couldn’t be the community center we’ve become without you. Last year, WVPL had 180,509 visits by 23,254 registered users. We circulated 346,907 items including eBooks, eMagazines, eAudio books, print books, DVD’s, video games and audio books. The library held 1,166 events which drew 21,978 people and our reference librarians answered 6,307 questions.

     I’d like to leave you with a picture. Imagine the joy you felt when you got your first library card and you could borrow anything you wanted from the library. We want to continue spreading that joy. Will you help us by donating? You can choose to donate towards new books and movies, library programs, technology needs or let the library decide where we need it most. Just click on the donate button and when you see “Add special instructions to the seller,” type in your choice.
