Darien Library will celebrate its 125th Anniversary on May 29, 2019. To commemorate this historic moment, the library will be holding a special 24-hour giving day called “1894 Day,” which will run from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on May 29th.
For the first time in 10 years, the library will not hold its Annual Gala this spring. Instead, they will ask the entire community for their support on 1894 Day. In honor of the 125th anniversary, their goal is to raise $125,000 on May 29th. All funds raised on 1894 Day will be dedicated directly to library resources, including all of the books, DVDs, technology, learning resources, and programs for children, teens, and adults.
Festivities will take place in the Library throughout the day, including crafts, a family scavenger hunt, and cake and coffee at 4 p.m. There will also be special giveaways for every suggested contribution level, including Darien Library car magnets, baseball hats, and branded Vineyard Vines tote bags.
Donors may give online on May 29 at darienlibrary.org/donate, or visit the Library in person that day. For more information, please contact the Library’s Administrative Office at 203-669-5220.
