How can you help the library
Become an Associate! To meet the challenge of providing the highest possible standard of service, The Desmond-Fish Library created the Associates Program to assist with the program development and the continuing need to maintain and upgrade the facility and the beautiful grounds that surround it.
Associates make annual individual membership contributions of $500 or more and sponsor an annual gala fundraising dinner.
Become a Friend of the Library. Funds raised through membership provide books and computers for the Library, special Library projects, Children's Summer Reading programs and free lectures and presentations.
Pick out an item to purchase for the Desmond Fish Library from their Wish List. Please give us your name and address on the free "gift card" when you order from Amazon so that we can write you a thank you. Certain bestsellers have numerous people waiting for them and we would appreciate extra copies of items with 100 or more holds to help us fill those requests.
