To continue offering up to date materials for adults and children as well as our expanding array of services and programs, the Library depends heavily on the support of its patrons. These programs and services come at a considerable cost, and meeting those costs, as well as the ever increasing expense of maintaining our historic building, is a challenge. While the Town provides some funding (20% of our budget), the rest comes from private donations.
We, quite simply, couldn’t do all of this without your help. Please, therefore, consider a tax deductible gift to the library.
Maria Hotchkiss Society and President’s Circle
The Maria Hotchkiss Society provides leadership support, and is critical to our financial health. Though any donation is appreciated, we believe that by virtue of the Library’s service to the entire community, it is particularly worthy of your contribution.
To join the Maria Hotchkiss Society, you can donate below or send a check to:
Hotchkiss Library of Sharon
10 Upper Main Street
Sharon, CT 06069
Many thanks to our generous Maria Hotchkiss Society and President’s Circle members:

Another way to contribute is through a bequest in your will. It could be a specific bequest of money or property or a portion of the residue of your estate.
