Why We Need Your Support

Although the bulk of the library’s funding comes from taxes, many people do not realize the extent to which the library building, collection and programs have been funded by the Croton Free Library Association and by the generous contributions from people like you.

What We Do

The Association raises funds to support ongoing operations, programs and services of the library as well as significant purchases such as the piano in the Ottinger Room and the new patio. Fundraising sponsored by the Association include the semi-annual Book & Bake Sale, held each Spring and Autumn, as well as an annual membership drive and ongoing merchandise sales.
