Dear Library Supporter,

The Olive Free Library is fortunate to receive taxpayer support and grants that help us meet our core annual operating and maintenance expenses. We rely on generous donors like you every year to help us fund new capital projects and sustain the Library as a vital asset to the community.  

With your help, we have maintained the integrity of the library building and have completed several essential repairs and upgrades including, most recently, the installation of a new ADA compliant elevator! This exciting and important upgrade allows us to be accessible to everyone, regardless of mobility issues. 

We seek to continue with capital improvements in the coming years, including installing new, energy-efficient windows. The Library’s windows are original to the building, and while at the time when installed, they were top-of-the-line windows, technology and energy efficiency have come a long way. Our goal is to replace the windows by 2022. 

When we are able to maintain the physical structure of our Library, we ensure continued dynamic service to you and our community. Your tax-deductible gift will help us meet the goal of funding these essential capital projects. 

We are deeply grateful for your contribution and appreciate the many ways you participate in creating Olive Free Library’s unique and vital community.

Wishing health and happiness to you and your loved ones,

Chrissy L. Lawlor
Library Director
