Library Relocation Update

Now that the ban on non-essential construction has been lifted for the Mid-Hudson Region, renovations have begun for phase one of the new LaGrange Library in Town Center! We remain cautiously optimistic for relocation sometime this fall. Stay tuned for further updates.

Please remember that the renovation costs will not be paid for by town tax money, but through the Library's building fund, grants, and contributions from our community and local business partners.

We know that the economic climate is hard right now. If you feel you can contribute to the Library’s Capital Campaign, please help. If you cannot, we ask that you please remember us when you can.

For further details on the relocation, how to donate, and naming opportunities, please go to http://lagrangelibrarycampaign.org/

Or check out our GoFundMe (and SHARE with your social media friends) at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/lagrange-library-relocation

If you would rather make a donation via mail or PayPal, make sure you specify that it is for the "Capital Campaign". Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
