Give back to an essential community resource
The Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library offers something for everyone of every age.
Ever wonder how you can give back to the library? There are several ways to support the library now and in the future.
Donations of books and materials
Donations of gently used books, current magazines, other periodicals and audiovisual materials like DVDs are always welcome to supplement those purchased with the library’s budget. You can bring in items during library hours and leave them with a staff member at the desk. Just let us know if you would like a receipt for your donation!
The Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library accepts cash gifts to fund projects and improvements to the library, or to purchase books and other materials to add to our collection. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Memorials and special gifts
Memorials and honorariums are excellent ways to remember someone special while at the same time supporting the library. These donations may be in memory of a deceased loved one, a unique Christmas or other holiday gift, or they may celebrate a special event such as the birth of a child, a birthday or an anniversary.
Bequests have the advantage of creating meaningful future gifts without lessening the assets available to you during your lifetime. Bequests can be made for the benefit of the library program of your choice, and may consist of the entirety or a portion of your estate.
Trusts and charitable gift annuities
Charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities may provide you (or others) income during your lifetime, a charitable income tax deduction, and provide substantial future support for the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library.
Bequests, charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities are legal commitments. We suggest you seek the counsel of your legal and financial advisors. These advisors know your personal situation best.
