Library Giving Day, April 7, 2021, is a national effort to promote donations to support libraries on the Wednesday of National Library Week.  The Foundation is encouraging contributions to support our work of raising money to benefit the libraries of the Mohawk Valley Library System.  Please contribute today by clicking the Donate Button on the right side of this page.

Libraries provide free services that are available to everyone.  Access to information, books, audio, DVDs, classes, events and a pleasant space for anyone to learn and collaborate.  Support your library by providing a Library Giving Day contribution to the Foundation for Mohawk Valley Libraries.

The Community Library in Cobleskill is receiving funding to improve their marketing materials and to incorporate the library’s 100th Anniversary into those materials. The Schoharie Free Library is also doing a marketing campaign to promote their expanded service area and increased hours or operation. The Sharon Springs Free Library’s project is to develop a new promotional brochure. Congratulations to all of the grant recipients.
