Annual Fund Drive

Dear Library Supporter,

We hope 2017 was a good year for you.  This year, the over 39,000 people who came through the doors of the Hamburg Library helped us to circulate more than 56,000 items and answer more reference questions than ever before.

As a community activity center for all ages, we’re proud that our library provides a broad variety of programs and services to our users.  Along with the books, audios, dvds and magazines, we have a book club, AARP Tax Aid for seniors, story time for toddlers and preschoolers and the Summer Reading Program.

Throughout 2017, as we do every year, we had various free programs for adults and children. For example, in 2017 we had a program on beginning investing; Mike Jesberger told us about a Colonial Christmas; and local author, Karla Jensen gave a talk on her book Nobody’s Hero: A Story About A Marine Sniper Scout.  For the children, we had a science program with the fabulous Sciencetellers and a magic show with magician Brian Richards.   These programs, which are presented at no cost to participants, positively impact the lives of the very young through the oldest member of our community. Also every May we have our annual plant swap at the library and our used book sale fundraiser at the Hamburg Middle School cafeteria. 

We rely heavily on gifts and fundraising proceeds to pay for library collections, programs and basic services.  The generosity of library users and our volunteers is crucial to keeping our doors open. You have been kind enough to support our library in the past and it is our hope that you will continue to do so. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND DIRECTLY BENEFIT THE HAMBURG PUBLIC LIBRARY.  We wholeheartedly thank you for your continuing support!
