Read about the library’s Annual and Capital Campaigns
This is the time of year the library conducts its Annual Giving Campaign. Giving provides an excellent opportunity to invest in the continued operation of the library. Librarians keep the building open weekdays, evenings, and Saturday mornings providing opportunity for patrons to meet a variety of schedules. Your generous contribution helps keep the library doors open.
In addition to our Annual Giving Campaign, we are kicking off a Capital Campaign. You may not know this, but the Brandon Library building is one of town’s earliest commercial buildings. And as we all know, old buildings have needs. The Board of Trustees has launched a $70,000 Capital Campaign to address the capital needs of the library.
