Dear Community Residents,
It is almost impossible to convey how very grateful we are that the residents of Southwestern
Central School District provide such a solid base of support for Lakewood Memorial Library —
70% of its annual budget.
This support has been more vital than ever this year. The “new normal” that has re-defined
everyone’s lives means that our biggest annual fundraising activities – our Book Sales, the
Youth Ambassadors’ June Fun Run, and our Food for Thought fall event – have had to be
indefinitely postponed or canceled.
Now, one of the only ways we can safely obtain the remaining 30% of our annual budget is
through this request for donations. Your gift to the library – of any amount – is mission-
critical to helping us maintain the important programs and services we offer to all residents of
all ages, free of charge.
Also, since the Lakewood Library is a 501(c)(3) organization, all gifts are tax-deductible to the
extent allowed by law.
You can donate online using the form below.
Thank you so much for supporting your library.
