Support MCL !
Since opening our doors last November, 1,330 people have become new members of the Library. The growing number of members directly correlates to increases in circulation, in some areas by as much as 100%. In this time our free WiFi was used 6,959 times by people bringing their own laptop or tablet into the Library, and our 15 hard-wired, public PC and Mac computers have been used 5,479 times by a community member. This year the Summer Reading Program, which provides literacy activities and incentives to keep children reading during the summer, saw participation grow by 119% over the previous year.
These numbers represent a powerful statement of support from the community. People value the programs and services we provide, but in order to sustain, nurture, and grow our work now and in the years to come, we need your help.
Opening the doors to the new building was simply the first step in opening up new opportunities for our entire community. Now, we ask that you make an investment to support the Manchester Community Library, with your contribution to the annual fund today!
Thank you for your support!
