The Valley Falls Free Library Expansion Fund Drive Starts Now!

Help us to “See Double” — Doubling our Building Space


As announced, the Valley Falls Free Library received grants and gifts to finally begin a long-sought expansion of our historic library.  The monies we have received to date will cover our external construction costs including:

  • A new entrance with full accessibility (incl. restrooms) and adaptable facilities for visitors, community and staff
  • Expanded spaces for community events and programs, technology upgrades and so much more.

HOWEVER- We need your support to COMPLETE the project:

For  Furnishings For Landscaping
For New Library Materials For Other Major Interior Elements

Our Goal is $100,000… YOUR donation will get us there!!  


We’re recognizing supporters in a unique way – your donation will be memorialized for you or your loved ones on our Supporters Bookshelf. A qualifying (tax-deductible) gift will be featured on a bookplate on our Supporters Bookshelf — engraved with the name(s) of your choosing.  See the Supporters Recognition form for donation level details.
