Yesterday– May 3, 2016– was an exciting day at the Forbes Library! 108 generous donors made the Forbes Library a charity of their choice for Valley Gives. Thank you for helping us to reach our goal.
Together we raised $11,882, including the full $5,000 match from the Friends of Forbes Library and $400 in prize money from Balise. All of the proceeds will be used for free programs and special events for the community.
Forbes Library, the public library for Northampton, Massachusetts, serves as a community meeting place in which curiosity, free inquiry, and lifelong learning are supported and nurtured.
The library is open to everyone. Forbes Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.
