The Stay at Home and Read a Book Ball

The Stay at Home and Read a Book Ball is our yearly special fundraiser. We ask you to please consider donating the money that you would have spent on a night out to support your library.  Friends of the VPL raises money to support innovative programs, buy supplies, furniture and artwork for our library.

We have an ongoing commitment to fund the Writer in Residence and the Writing and Book Camp for children and teens.  A full list of what we funded in 2014 is listed here. Friends like you helped us raise $36,500 in 2014, and our goal for 2015 is $50,000.

This year we are shining the spotlight on e-books and digital literacy so to participate in the Ball why not check out an e-book from the VPL to Go collection! Or find a great new read at book`mark, the Library Store. With a donation of $50 or more, you will receive a $5 voucher good for a used book at book’mark, The Library Store. All donations will receive a tax receipt.

Your donation, large or small, will help us fund library programs and needs identified by the library, and new initiatives such as the VPL Inspiration Lab, a 3,000-square-foot hub at the Central Library that will have recording studios and editing stations for video and sound, digitization tools to preserve and share stories, and workshops that spark the imagination of all ages.

Thank you. And please consider joining us if you are not already a member.  It`s only $5!
