The Whitten Society

Whitten Society Members contribute $120 or more to the library’s Annual Appeal.  Members of the Whitten Society are invested in our mission to be a community center for all ages, connecting people to knowledge and to each other.  Members receive a subscription to the Whitten Society Connections e-newsletter, invitations to Whitten Society events, and a special key ring recognizing their support.  The list of Whitten Society Members is updated weekly.  For more information, email or ask for Dave.
