HUDSON VALLEY GIVES 2020
An enormous and heartfelt thank you from the SRL Foundation to our amazing Library community for making Hudson Valley Gives a big success. Together we raised more than $20,000 for the Library!  Your overwhelming generosity helped us to double our goal of $10,000. We won cash prizes and reached new levels of support for the Library:
  • 1st place ($250) – most donors between 4pm – 8pm
  • 2nd place ($250) – greatest dollar increase from 2019 to 2020
Out of 7 counties and 132 organizations we placed:
  • 2nd for the most donors overall
  • 5th for the most funds raised overall

Wow!

This campaign replenishes what our Library lost due to the cancellation of such beloved fundraising events as the Book Fair / Plant Sale & the Recognition Tea. By coming together as a community we are helping to see our Library through this difficult time.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you!

Hudson Valley Gives will still accept donations through the end of May.

Success!

It truly takes a village, and with the help of a truly amazing village–our community–the preservation work on our beloved historic library is complete. Over the past decade, the Stone Ridge Library Foundation has raised the funds necessary to stabilize old buildings, rebuild and renovate.

Our New Activity Room

If you’ve recently visited the far end of the Library you’ve probably noticed the changes. Thanks to the generosity of our caring community, the southwest corner of the 1811 building has been completely transformed and now includes a beautiful new Activity Room, a new kitchenette and an ADA-accessible bathroom. (And on the way there you may have noticed our renovated Children’s Room!)


Looking Ahead

The Stone Ridge Library Foundation is looking forward to some improvements that will enhance your experience as a Library patron. In 2020 the SRLF focus will be on indoor projects. We will be asking your support for matching grants to alleviate congestion at the desk by enlarging the circulation desk area. To contribute to this project, click here or on the DONATE button below.

We believe our Library is the heart of our community. It’s here to serve you, and the Stone Ridge Library Foundation is here to help the Library serve. Your continuing support is what makes that possible. We appreciate and encourage you to donate, volunteer, and explore ways to get involved. None of our work would not be possible without the help of people like you.


Who We Are:

The Stone Ridge Library Foundation is a group of dedicated volunteers working to help the library serve. We come from all walks of life, sharing a love of the Library and recognizing the vital role it plays in the community. Our efforts are coordinated with the goals of the Board of Trustees, the Director and the Library staff.

What We Do:

The SRLF raises money for services and materials not covered in the Town Library Budget. We organize special holiday events and pop-up sales, a yearly Recognition Tea, and an annual auction among other projects.
