2023-24 Annual Appeal

Every year Bradford Public Library requests financial support through our Annual Appeal. The Library receives about 65% of its operating budget from the Town of Bradford and must raise the remainder through fundraising, a small endowment, grants, donations, and our Annual Appeal campaign. Please give today via the DONATE button at the top of this page, by sending a check to PO Box 619, Bradford VT 05033, or stop by the library!

The Bradford Public Library is your vital community resource. Please help us continue to thrive! In the last year, our patron base has grown over 22%. To meet the demand, we have increased staffing, updated and improved accessibility to our website providing resources and information to patrons and visitors. We offer a variety of stimulating children and adult programming experiences, and added to our collections, all the while maintaining the Woods Library building, a historic landmark, tourist destination, and enduring source of pride for Bradford. Like many in our area we have also been collaborating with local agencies to support displaced individuals who have settled in our area. We, the Bradford Public Library Board of Trustees, ask you to financially support our 2023-24 Annual Appeal. Your financial contributions to the Bradford Public Library directly support the community we serve! 

Thank you for supporting the Bradford Public Library.
