Support the Library – Ways to Donate
It is through the generosity of private citizens, businesses and local foundations that the Library continues to remain a resource for all. Tracing its roots to 1897, the Library has more than 100 years of continuous service to the community. From your gift, you will have that personal sense of satisfaction knowing that you have helped the Library carry forward its mission – the mission to inform, inspire, entertain and challenge all who enter its doors.
At the Westhampton Free Library we appreciate every amount a person or entity can give to us. A gift of time is equally as important as a monetary donation. To this end we have many ways in which you can contribute to the success of the Library. For example you can donate online via credit card or join the Friends of the Library. To donate by check, please send your donation to:
Westhampton Free Library
7 Library Avenue
Westhampton Beach, New York 11978
The Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and all donations are tax deductible.
