10th Anniversary Celebration

Sunday Apr 9, 2017, noon 5 p.m.

The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library will hold a 10th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, April 9, 2017, 12 - 5 pm, to mark its first decade in the McHugh building. The library, chartered in 1896, opened the doors to its newly built Flywheel Park location on a bright and brisk Hudson Valley day in March 2007.

Just what has taken place in that charming yellow building by the river since that day? Come find out. Festivities will include live music by the Old No. 7 Band, food trucks, tech demos, children's art, stories & crafts, library history & trivia, grounds tours, mini golf in the stacks, an "edible books" baking contest (submission forms available at the front desk or as a downloadable PDF), and more. Our gallery space will feature a brief history of how the library came to be, how the current building got its name, and how the institution continues to evolve as a community hub.

As part of the 10th Anniversary Celebration, the library is offering two excellent naming opportunities for donors. First, there will be a 10th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign with a generous Matching Challenge. Donations to the 10th Anniversary Fund will be matched by longtime supporters Dale and Ed Nelson up to the first $5,000 raised. This is a chance to make your contribution to the library go twice as far. Donors who give $250 or more will have their names engraved on a 10th Anniversary Wall plaque. Double your impact and leave a lasting declaration of your support by giving to the 10th Anniversary Fund.

The second naming opportunity comes in the form of a special 10th Anniversary Path of engraved bricks. This new walkway will connect the bench on the front lawn to the sidewalk that leads to the rain garden. This is a unique opportunity to commemorate your loved ones while contributing to your library. Donate just $200, a discounted rate from the front Path of Friends, to inscribe one line on a brick.

All contributions are tax deductible. Donations to the 10th Anniversary Fund and Path will support the library's stated mission and future maintenance of a now aging and well-used building. Visit the library for donation forms, or download them here. Help keep your charming yellow library robust for the next 10 years and beyond.
