Thanks & Recognition

Each year, community support from individuals, businesses, grantmaking organizations, family foundations, volunteers, and the Town of Manchester enables the MCL to fulfill our mission: to be open to all as an inspiring gathering place for the community, providing resources for personal enrichment and growth. Read about the impact of giving to the MCL in the Annual Appreciation Reports below, and learn more about the MCL’s giving society, the Frances Skinner Willing Circle.

The Frances Skinner Willing Circle

The Frances Skinner Willing Circle acknowledges those who have included the Manchester Community Library in their estate plans. Members of the Willing Circle receive a commemorative gift and recognition in our Annual Appreciation Report, as well as special communications from the Executive Director and an invitation to our annual donor recognition event.
