Special Appeals Fundraiser

With your help, Friends of the Voorheesville Public Library have strengthened and expanded our used-book drive by

  • launching the ENCORE Books project and
  • adding a storage shed in the Library parking lot.

The funds raised by ENCORE Books help support many Library outreach programs including book discussions for young people and adults, the annual summer reading program for young people, and regular family concerts.

It's time to expand our effort and build on the extraordinary support the community has shown for ENCORE Books. The Friends would like to buy a second shed that would double ENCORE Books capacity and allow for the processing of more community-donated books and media.

Your support is vital to the success of this expansion. The Friends have committed $2000 of our own funds and are actively soliciting grants from local businesses. Community support in the amount of $8000 will round out this special fundraising effort and provide us with a second shed.

Please help ENCORE Books grow by donating today. Contact Coordinator, Patty Miller about how to donate.

ENCORE Books will Re-Open in the Spring

We will begin accepting donations in April 2017.

Volunteers Always Welcome

It's time to share your skills, get to know the community, feel needed, gain leadership skills, and more. Volunteer for as little or as much time as we can schedule. Community Service Credit Available
