Friends of the Hampton Library raise over $30,000

Thank YouThe Hampton Library has the best Friends!

The Friends of the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton recently presented the Library with a check for $30,500. This money was raised through two very successful annual fundraisers, our Cocktail party, hosted this year at the home of John and Cassie Pouschine, and our Fridays at Five Author Series.

The money raised will be used for programming for all ages, a Makerbot 3D printer and digitizer and a permanent technology exploration station for patrons to test drive our digital services and try the newest devices, eReaders and tablets available for use. The money raised by the Friends also paid for our new circulating museum passes. These passes can be checked out like a book and will admit you to museums like MoMA, The Frick, the Guggenheim and others. 

Once again, Thank You to all of our hardworking dedicated Friends of the Library.
