From our Foundation: Our thanks…and a chance to serve your Library

The Foundation for the Saugus Library would like to extend a thank you to all the wonderful people who came out to support the 4th Annual Gala on Saturday, October 20, 2018.  The foundation would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to the Staff of the Saugus Library and Director, Alan Thibeault for all that they do for the patrons.  

Thank you to our Sponsors, North Shore Bank, Doyle & Colonna Law, Nelson Change, Peter Rossetti, The Savings Bank, Webster First and Wheelabrator.   A special thanks to Saugus Garden Club for the lovely flowers they donated that decorated the library on Saturday.  Also, to Kristen Tozza and Linda Call for all their hard work behind the scenes to make the event such a great evening.   The Gala was a success!

The Foundation returns 100% of profits of the Gala to the Saugus Library by supporting events and funding purchases that are not typically covered by the Town library budget.  We are currently in the process of acquiring an electronic sign that will be programed to display coming events and information for the library.

In the past we have purchased the flat screen TV that is used by many civic groups for presentations in the Community Room.  We have funded the purchase of over 25 new computers used throughout the library and purchased much needed new furniture for the children’s section of the building.  The Foundation continues to fund the library web site and the genealogy research programs which are used extensively by the patrons.  These are just some of the ways we give back to the Library and the wonderful people who rely on the services. 

The Foundation is made of the following board members:  Edward Jeffery, Chairman, Linda Call, Vice Chair, Kim Lovett, Treasurer, Corrine Riley, Secretary, Ellen Palleschi,  John Smolinsky, and Kristen Tozza, Co-Chair of the Gala, 2018.

The Foundation is looking to increase its membership. If you are interested in learning more or joining the Foundation, please send contact information to saugusplf@gmail.com .
