  • 2019 Mystic & Noank Library Annual Holiday Appeal

    Support Your Library Today!

    2019 Mystic & Noank Library Annual Holiday Appeal

    Ongoing support from our community is more important than ever.

    The Mystic & Noank Library receives roughly 30% of our annual funding from the State of Connecticut and Towns of Groton and Stonington. In order to keep MNL the bustling and lively community resource that it is, we must rely on philanthropy for the remaining 70%.

    Everyday our Library is transforming the lives of our friends and family who call our special community home. Your past support has helped us get where we are today.  As we enter the season of thanks and giving, can we once again count on you being part of the 70%?

    Your gift to our 2019 holiday appeal will help us continue to enrich the lives of everyone who comes through our doors.  As Henry Ward Beecher said, “A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessities of life.” 

    With thanks and our warmest wishes to you and yours for a peaceful holiday season.

Join us this month for some time to sit down and put it on paper. Check out this workbook to help you begin. Or ask for some books at the library. Good luck!
