Topsham Public Library Business Sponsorship

“A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” –Andrew Carnegie, entrepreneur, businessman, philanthropist

The Topsham Public Library owes much of what it is today to business and community leaders who, like Andrew Carnegie, dedicated time, talent, and treasure to ensure that the community would have a PUBLIC resource to benefit the “industrious and ambitious… [those] most anxious and able to help themselves.” As a member of the business community you can maintain this legacy through the Business Roundtable and Business Sponsorships.

In return, we recognize your investment in the well-being of the community, and you benefit from a community that can help your business succeed: you do well by doing good.

Business Roundtable Members annually sponsor the library’s mission at $1000 or higher. They participate in Roundtable luncheons, working with other members, community leaders, and library staff and trustees to develop partnerships that benefit the community.
