Fund Raising Campaign for the New Library is Underway!
We promised last year that the Irondequoit Public Library Foundation would undertake a fund raising campaign to help hold down the cost of the new library. The campaign has begun! Money raised will pay for furniture, fixtures and equipment for the new library. There are also naming opportunities. Please consider a donation. See our pledge letter and fund raiser form below. If you wish to contribute please fill out and send in the pledge form. You can also donate online at: irondequoitlibraryfoundation.com

Imagine Your Library
We are looking for imaginative ideas for a sculpture that will be a prominent fixture in our town’s new library.
The sculpture will be a wood carving created out of one of the trees to be removed from the Town Hall Campus. A local artist will be commissioned to take the conceptual idea and turn it into a life-sized, three dimensional carving that we will enjoy for generations to come.
Use this form to submit your idea or email the information to the Irondequoit Public Library Board of Trustees at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1st. Forms can be turned in at or mailed to the McGraw Branch, the Evans Branch, or the Town Hall. The final concept will be announced late summer/early fall.

Library proposal approved by voters again
Excerpt from the statement by the Irondequoit Public Library Board of Trustees on the election results for the library proposal referendum:
Tonight, Irondequoit voters once again authorized a $13 million bond for the construction of a new central library on the Town Hall campus. The library board is thrilled and honored to continue to have the support of Irondequoit residents for this important project.
This will be the library that our community builds together; the library the meets the needs of all our residents and businesses; the library that Irondequoit deserves.
This library proposal has come after many, many years of discussions and studies. The vote tonight was another step in the process.
Just this year alone, we held 23 forums to educate the public, answer their questions and get valuable input. As we move forward, the community will continue to be engaged.
The Library Board looks forward to working on this project and making the town proud.
