Darien Library will celebrate their 126th Anniversary on May 27, 2020 by holding an annual giving day called “1894 Day.” 1894 Day will run from 12:00am to 11:59pm on May 27. In honor of the Library’s 126th Anniversary, their goal is to raise $126,000 on May 27.
All funds raised on 1894 Day will be dedicated directly to library resources. Darien Library is a true public-private partnership between the Town of Darien, which pays for salaries and operating expenses, and the Friends of the Library, who generously fund all of the books, audiobooks, e-books, computers, technology, research databases, and its impressive range of cultural and entertainment programs.
The Library is asking the entire community for their support on May 27. There will also be special giveaways for every donor that day including Darien Library koozies, Darien Library travel tumblers, and Darien Library waterproof outdoor blankets.
Donors may give online at any time on May 27 at darienlibrary.org/donate.
