Providing you with the materials you need and keeping YOU at the forefront of our decision-making has been Schlow’s priority during these challenging times. From doorside pick-up to expanded eReading options to Virtual Storytimes, Schlow continues to be a patron-centered service provider with YOU at our heart.

We are sensitive to the economic challenges facing everyone right now. The reality of reduced funding is a concern for the Library as well. With the possibility of greatly reduced service revenue, Schlow Library is facing challenging times. It is with a sense of urgency that we ask - will you support Schlow Library with a gift?

Every gift makes an impact, no matter the size. Now, the Library needs your support to continue to provide services to the community and prepare for an uncertain future. The future is only possible through your generous support. By investing in Schlow Library, you’re investing in the well-being of our community and providing opportunities for many. Please join the amazing group of supporters who see the value that the Library brings to the community.
