Annual Fund Drive for the Cortland Free Library

If OUR library has positively impacted YOUR story, say so with a donation to our first-ever annual fund-drive!

A fundraising campaign for Cortland Free Library

If OUR library has positively impacted YOUR story -- and if you believe as I do that this cherished community institution should remain strong so we can impact the lives and, yes, the stories of others for years to come -- won't you make a donation to this, our first-ever, annual fund-drive?

All funds raised will be applied -- under advisement by our dedicated library staff and with guidance from our volunteer Board of Trustees -- to library operations!
