The Uxbridge Public Library has had the honour of serving residents of Uxbridge since 1887. In fact, we will be celebrating a milestone in 2012 ~ our 125th anniversary!
A variety of events have been planned for next year’s celebration including a gala fundraiser, The Book Lover’s Ball and Benefit at Wooden Sticks Golf Course on Saturday, April 14th, 2012. We are hoping that over 150 literary-minded guests will come together and show their support for the Library.
This black tie event will be an evening to remember, including hors d’oeuvres, three-course dinner with wine, and dancing with live music performed by Hot Air – a local big band with
17 members. Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on fabulous prizes in a silent auction, in support of the Library’s expansion fund.
The Uxbridge Public Library, including our Zephyr Branch, are information resources, committed to fostering literacy and promoting life long learning throughout our community. Over 33% of Uxbridge residents are active Library cardholders and borrowed over 170,000 items last year. In addition, approximately 5,000 children and adults in our community attended over 230 Library programs!
The popularity of the Library, combined with recent budget cuts, an old but historical building, technological advances and the evolving needs of our patrons, means the demands on our Library system continue to grow year by year. To assist the Library in meeting increasingly diverse needs, we are in need of additional funding to help protect, enhance and expand important library materials, programs and services.
