Annual Appeal

Your Community Center for Lifelong Learning and Cultural Enrichment

During the past year, the library offered 540 programs that were attended by almost 12,000 people. Its interior space was also reconfigured to make it more user friendly for those who bring in their own electronic devices. If you haven’t visited the library in a while, please stop by and see how many services are available for toddlers, teens and adults.

Did you know?
  • Last year the Essex Library had the highest per capita attendance for both children’s and adult programs compared to the other libraries in the lower Connecticut River valley.
  • The Essex Library now offers a special collection of downloadable ebooks and audiobooks available exclusively to Essex residents.
  •  The Library is visited close to 60,000 times each year.

Also, did you know that we need to raise at least $70,000 each year during our Annual Appeal to run the Library?

Your help is vital for maintaining a high quality library that we all expect. Please be as generous as you can when you make your gift to the Essex Library’s Annual Appeal.

Thank you in advance,
George Sexton
Essex Library Association Board of Trustee
