Annual Fund Drive Letter

Keep a look out for your Friends of the Swarthmore Library annual fund drive letter.

"And you can bet on the fact that the library’s return on investment is very high. In fact, according to the American Library Association’s library value calculator, which calculates the monetary worth of library services, our library’s market value is nearly $542 million. That’s a lot of value in a little building!"
