How We Use Your Donation

The Library building and grounds are owned by the Bainbridge Island community.  The maintenance, improvement, and operation of the facility is managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. The funds used by the Board to accomplish this comes only from your donations.  Without your donations, the lights would be off and the buildings and grounds would fall into decay.

To find out more about the short-term and long-term needs and plans for the facility, please read the 2018 Annual Report in the right hand column.  Hopefully you will come away with the understanding that your contributions are vital to keeping a beloved community institution alive and vibrant.
