Our Mission Statement: The Edith B. Ford Memorial Library provides access to information and programs to inspire lifelong learning for the cultural, educational, and professional enrichment of our community. 

An Association Library: Everyone is welcome to join the library’s Association by donating at any level. Association Members are a collection of people who choose to support the library financially, and guide us by electing our Board of Trustees. These contributions are an essential and critical part of our annual budget. Your support goes directly to the operating budget for the year and it is fully tax-deductible. These funds are what keep the library open and running, pay for staff, programs; and purchase all library materials. 

Thank you – we truly appreciate your donation.
