No one can deny Brighton Place Library is one of the treasures of our community. But not many people know our story. As Brighton Library, it was once part of the county library system until an economic recession forced its closure in 2005. A passionate community rallied to save their library and raised funds to purchase the building contents. One short year later, it became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and reopened as Brighton Place. We’ve been growing ever since, adding new programs, events and clubs, as well as new materials and updated technology. What a lively place!
And then, the pandemic hit. Like many businesses, we struggled to reopen. Finally, in May 2021, we welcomed our customers back inside! What a wonderful feeling to see everyone again! But having missed several major fundraising opportunities due to the pandemic, we could only stay open half-time. Our greatest wish is to get back to the level of service we had before COVID-19 changed the world.
You can help us do just that. During the month of June, we are asking everyone who sees this to donate $10 to Brighton Place and help us get back on our feet. We’ve made it so easy to do. You can securely donate with a credit card by clicking here, send a check or stop in with cash. Choose the method you like best.
Imagine how much help you can do with just $10! Your $10 donation helps buy new books for kids and adults. It helps us keep our technology up to date. It helps pay utilities and buy supplies like computer paper, ink or crayons and glue sticks for our Toddler Time program.
Being an independent library offers wonderful freedom to design our collection and programs as well as provide personalized service for our members, but without government funding we rely on you to keep us going. Please give today. A little bit of your support goes a long way! Thank you so very much!
