Simplify Your Holiday Shopping
A donation to the library is the perfect gift!
A donation in someone's name is a great gift for teachers, coworkers, bosses, and those hard-to-buy-for family members. You will receive a small decorative gift bag to give to your recipient. Inside is a card telling them that a donation has been made to the Cheshire Library in their name.
Give the gift of giving to our community. Your donation will purchase materials that will be shared and enjoyed for years by all library users. Simply stop by the library to make your donation and receive your gift bag.
