Support The Dyer Memorial Library

Our past is the key to our future. A shared heritage and a sense of history are priceless gifts we can give to ourselves and to generations yet to come. Help us to preserve that past; help us to ensure our future.

Although the library’s resources are available to the public at no cost, the Dyer is entirely privately funded and receives no government support. At present, the Dyer Memorial Library operates out of funds derived from investment income of two trusts: Marietta Dyer’s original bequest and a trust established in the 1980s through the generosity of Joseph Murphy, a former library trustee who bequeathed his estate to the Dyer.

The Dyer Memorial Library is a tax exempt 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

There are a number of ways you can support the Dyer:


Gifts & Planned Giving

Outright Gifts
Gifts of cash are the simplest, most direct way to support the Dyer's work. You may make a secure donation to the Dyer Memorial Library through PayPal.
