Keene Valley Library Association
A library outranks any other thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert. – Andrew Carnegie
Dear Friends of the Keene Valley Library,
We are grateful to you for your generous support of the Keene Valley Library’s effort to provide a place for the exchange of ideas, the broadening of experience, and the expansion of knowledge. Your past donations to this Annual Appeal have made possible a multitude of programs and services for this community.
Remember that as an Association Library, we really depend on donations to meet operating costs since we are not funded as “Public” libraries are. Your contribution will provide over a third of the operating budget for this coming year. Your gift enables our Library to keep the doors open to a warm and enriching environment and to maintain the archives, computer and technical services, along with all the expenses associated with what is beyond that open door such as heat, electricity, Wi-Fi, books, programs, insurance and most importantly, the staff.We have been blessed with your concern and support in the past and we are asking that you dwell just a moment on what the Keene Valley Library means to you. Help us to keep it vital, welcoming, and the continued heartbeat of this community.

To me the Keene Valley Library is a place of peace and knowledge. ~5th grade Keene Central School student
The Keene Valley Library means a lot to me. It means that I can read a book that my parents can’t buy for me. Reading makes everything easier. In some books I can learn stuff that I might need in school. Many kids enjoy the Library like I do. ~5th grade Keene Central School student.
To me the Keene Valley Library is a place of imagination, relaxation, and where you can have your own reading bubble. ~6th grade Keene Central School student.
