Library Foundation

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library Foundation supports the mission of the Library by providing grants. These grants fund major initiatives and projects, like the ones listed below. Managed by a Board of Directors, the Foundation helps offset any current or anticipated decrease in funding. We’re thankful for the support of the Foundation and wouldn’t be able to do many of the things we do without them! We hope you will consider supporting the Library through the Foundation. Gifts will be used to ensure the longevity of the Library’s mission. One-time and recurring donations are appreciated.

Winter Reading

The Library Foundation funds the annual Winter Reading Program. This program encourages families to read every day! While the Summer Reading Program helps keep kids reading outside of school, the Winter Program gives them something to work toward through the holidays!

Summer Reading

Crackerjack Book Program

‘A Discussion In Every Box!’ That’s the motto of the Library’s new Crackerjack Book program for seniors, funded by a grant from the Library Foundation. Each Crackerjack Book box contains everything necessary to host a book discussion: a popular book in multiple formats (large print, audio, and digital, discussions, questions, and an author bio). Boxes circulate to local senior residential communities.
