Thank You for your consideration in becoming a library member in 2015!
On behalf of the Fort Plain Free Library, please accept our gratitude for your continual support of our community library. With your sustained support, our library has been able to maintain a current and relevant collection of materials in the various formats, required by our mission, to meet the information, recreational and intellectual needs of our patrons. Our library strives to be an active, evolving resource for the community. We acknowledge that the role of a community library in contemporary times is becoming increasingly more versatile.
To fulfill the needs, interests and requests of our public, our library is offering a multitude of classes and programs spanning a broad spectrum of subjects for every age group. In congruence, books, publications, digital resources, dvd’s and other materials all remain a quintessential part of our library services.
We will also begin our long anticipated building renovation project this summer! If you would like to sponsor part of this project there are other opportunities for you! Thanks to your support we are able to continue to build our presence as a resource for our community.
As a Sponsor Member your gift of $100.00 or more will be used to purchase supplies and materials for specific events such as the Story Hour, Summer Reading Program, Summer Science Program, computer classes and adult hands-on workshops. Most library programs are offered for free admission and lead by dedicated volunteers. However, tyne cost for supplies to support an interactive, hands-on program can be significant.

Sustaining Members enjoy all the benefits of a Family Membership and will be recognized in the Library for their contributions.
Most awards of grant funding require the Library to provide additional matching funding of 25% to 50% of the amount of the grant award. Your corporate or civic donation of $1,000.00 or more towards grant matching funds will be recognized in the Annual Report and prominently in the Library.
