“…we hope you will think about what the Yarmouth Port Library means to you
and to the community at large — and what Yarmouth Port would be without it.”
by Les Peat, Treasurer
Memberships in the Yarmouth Port Library are an important source of operating funds, providing about 25% of our operating budget and bridging the gap between our costs and other sources of operating revenue. As last year, our goal is $40,000.
For 2018, we ask our patrons to subscribe at what for them will be a sustainable level. If all of our current members maintain or increase the level of their 2017 membership gifts, their contributions, together with those of new members, will allow us to meet our objective. In considering your membership renewal, we hope you will think about what the Yarmouth Port Library means to you and to the community at large—and what Yarmouth Port would be without it. Please be as generous as you can.
For anyone who for some reason does not receive membership materials in the mail, you may pick up information at the library.
Note: Current memberships expire on December 31, 2018, but anyone who has joined after June 30, 2018 is enrolled as a member through December 31, 2019. If you are uncertain about your current membership status, please call Membership Committee Chairman Les Peat at 508-362-7660 to avoid a double payment.
