In October 2005, an article appeared in the Buffalo News about a grass-roots effort to save the Brighton Library. Soon after, more dedicated volunteers committed themselves to safeguarding this valuable community resource.
A fund raiser was quickly pulled together to raise money for the utilities and it was clear through the success of this event that this important undertaking had the support of many town residents.
Since that time, a non-profit corporation has been formed, officers have been chosen and an occupancy agreement has been arranged with the Town of Tonawanda, which enabled the group to gain ownership of the contents and remaining book collection of the former library. That collection, now supplemented by hundreds of books we have since purchased, along with many hours of hard work, some fresh paint and exciting plans for the future have all come together in Brighton Place.
Now we need your help. Please consider becoming a member and play a role in securing a bright future for Brighton Place.
