2016-2017 Annual Fund Drive

The Annual Fund Drive for the Sargent Memorial Library Foundation has begun!

Whether you enjoy holding the weight of a book in your hand, want to download the latest bestseller or music to your e-book reader or tablet, research genealogy or investments using one of the library's many online databases, attend an exhibit or an event, or consult with one of our knowledgeable staff members, the library has something for everyone. Anytime you use library materials or attend an event, you are saving your family money.

By making a modest contribution of $10 (or any amount) per family or business, the Foundation can continue to expand the library's collection and services, including books, digital downloads, periodicals, audio books, online references, and DVD's.

Through the generosity of our doners, the Foundation is able to provide continued contribution to the C/W Mars library network's digital download catalog, OverDrive. OverDrive in turn offers digital material (books, audiobooks, magazines, and videos) lending services to our patrons.

Additionally, the Foundation made the following services possible to our patrons:

The library is a busy community place. In fiscal 2014, the library had more than 93,000 patron visits, circulated over 161,000 items, and increased e-book circulation by 117%. Four out of five of Boxborough Residents hold library cards! The library's popular meeting rooms were host to 436 different gatherings.

Please consider supporting the library so that we can continue to enjoy this vibrant, vital town asset.

Donations are fully tax-deductible and may be dropped off at the library or mailed to Sargent Memorial Library Foundation, 427 Massachusetts Avenue, Boxborough, MA, 01719.
