Dear Boylston Resident,

 

The Boylston Public Library Foundation, Inc. (BPLF)  and the Boylston Friends of the Library (FOL) are fortunate to have sustainers like you. Last year, our two organizations partnered together for this appeal; Boylston responded with a noticeable increase in donations. These contributions have allowed the Foundation to focus on what it does best, providing financial support to library initiatives that are outside the library’s budget. The Friends got busy creating and continuing great programming for all ages of patrons.

 

The world has changed during this past year. The library has shifted its focus to virtual programs. High-powered Wifi access to the library’s exterior is now available; there will be hotspots available to check out of the library by the time you receive this letter.

Did you know that with the strengthened subscription to Overdrive Advantage, Boylston residents receive priority loans on hundreds of titles?

 

The Friends were able to continue providing passes (check with staff or website for availability at this time), some programming and a remote holiday craft/gift bag. They do hope to have a book sale when able, so hang on to your good books!                        

An architect will be selected in the next month to develop a plan with the Library Trustees to improve the BPL exterior. 

 

All of these projects were made possible with your continued support of our Annual Appeal. One thing is constant: the BPLF and FOL will always be there for your public library. We will continue to work closely with the library staff and the Trustees to bring much-needed and desired programs and projects to the residents of Boylston.

 

Thank you for your continued generosity and support. Your gift ensures that the Boylston Public Library will be there for you now and for generations to come. We appreciate your checks made out to the BPL Foundation. Please send any donations to PO Box 102, Boylston, MA 01505.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Christi Stille,                      Anne Ancona,


BPLF, Inc. President         FOL President
