Dear Friends,
Since 1926, the Clayville Library has been a cornerstone of the community. It has served area residents of all ages from all walks of life for more than 95 years. The building that began as a local church was transformed into a community hub and has evolved into the regional resource it is today:• an ever-growing inventory of 2021 books, CDs, DVDs, and magazines with over 70,000 items on our shelves• e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and music via the Libby App (formerly Overdrive)• a knowledgeable and customer-oriented staff to assist in finding the perfect resources• community events in the Barrett Nature Gazebo and the Ludlow Community Room to build our relationships with and among our neighbors• a Summer Reading Program for children to keep them engaged during their school break
We were all hit hard with the pandemic last year – mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and financially. The Clayville Library continued to serve the community throughout it all by supporting students who were learning virtually, parents who were juggling working from home and home schooling their children, teachers who were navigating Zoom, and many area residents who were isolated with sheltering in place. The Library rose to the challenge and provided a whole host of materials and services to help all of them navigate this new lifestyle.
Today, the Clayville Library desperately needs some TLC to continue to provide a welcoming presence in the Sauquoit Valley. Both the interior and the exterior need fresh coats of paint to preserve the ceiling and walls. Plus, the driveway and parking lot need paving. In spite of budget cuts to both county and state funding, area residents continue to support our efforts to serve the region. We greatly appreciate your confidence and support of all we do.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees for the Clayville Library Association, we sincerely appreciate your consideration of a gift to the annual fund drive. We have been able to accomplish many improvements with your previous generosity. Your support means so much in our service to you and the community.
