2023 in Review

As 2023 draws to an end the Friends of Island Library would like to thank all the generous Islanders and friends for donating your time and money to make this such a wonderful place for all of us to gather, visit and learn.

Your financial donations this year enabled FOIL to complete many improvements to our library. We raised almost $23,000 with our used book sale and the silent auction. We also received donations mailed to our P.O. Box and through PayPal. We conducted a campaign to raise $15,000 to buy a generator and were able to meet our goal in two months!

  • We completed all our exterior and interior general maintenance through out the year.
