We're kicking off our Annual Fund Drive!

Gifts to Wood Library's Annual Fund Drive sustain and enhance the essential library services and programs that people count on. 

When you support Wood Library, you are investing in our neighbors and community. Even in a community like ours that loves its library, public funding isn't enough to provide all the important resources that people need.

Your donation helps people learn and grow and build community resilience.

We are kicking off our annual fund drive with a goal of $95,000.  Use the donate button below to help us get off to a great start.  Thank you!
