Good News for Bethany’s Families

The Clark Memorial Library is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of $131,214 to renovate our Children’s Room! Happy Holidays indeed! We are so grateful for this opportunity to continue to add to the quality of life in Bethany by improving this area for town families!

Now our real work begins, though; the grant is contingent upon the Library raising matching funds, dollar for dollar. We need your help! Please donate to our Children’s Room fund. You can even designate a portion of your Annual Drive contribution to the Children’s Room Renovation. If you donate via PayPal, see below, please note that you must select the Children’s Room Renovation by clicking on the right drop-down arrow.

Also, The Friends of the Bethany Library are hosting a Holiday Dinner fundraiser to benefit this project. The dinner is on Dec 14, but reservations need to be made by calling the library, 203 393-2103, by Dec 7. The dinner includes a festive reading of Charles Dickens The Christmas Carol.

Tell your friends and neighbors about this wonderful opportunity we’ve worked so hard for. Join our Children’s Room Task Force and help shape the new space!

If you have any questions about the grant, or would like to offer your assistance, please reach out to the library at  203-393-2103 or to Sheila Lane, the Treasurer of the Bethany Library Association, at slane.cpa@gmail.com.

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3). All donations are tax deductible as permitted by the tax code.


In collaboration with the Bethany Clean Energy Task Force, we are hosting a One Book, One Town reading and book discussion of The Uninhabitable Earth-Life After Warming by David Wallace Wells. The town wide discussion is on Sunday, Nov 17, 2-4 pm, at the library. All readers of the book are welcome to participate. Copies of the book are available at the library and were donated by our partner. To participate in the facilitated book discussion, register by calling the library at   203 393-2103.  Ridesharing can be arranged!
