Dear Library Lover,
In 2005, Erie County closed all the public libraries in the Town of Tonawanda, north of Sheridan Drive. In response, a group of extremely dedicated community members, led by Michael P. Rizzo, stood together to keep the former Brighton Library and transform it into a not-for-profit library and resource center. Since reopening as Brighton Place in 2006, the library has served as an inspirational success story and a destination for learning and enrichment in the Town of Tonawanda and the surrounding area.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Brighton place depends on the generosity and support of community -minded individuals and companies. The majority of our revenue is earned through fundraisers and book sales.
Today, we embark on our Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by December 31, 2022. We’re reaching out to you because, as a Brighton Place member, you’ve already demonstrated your support for maintaining a library in this neighborhood. Would you be willing to make a special year-end contribution of $25, $50, or $100 to ensure we can continue to serve this community as an important resource? With your support, we can impact our community in a lasting way.
Please join us by making your gift by clicking here or by sending a check to Brighton Place at 999 Brighton Road Tonawanda, NY 14150.
Thank you for your continued support.
