Kate Cerrone, Campaign Chair
The Pomfret Public Library is a key resource in town. With the help of a grant from the Connecticut State Library and matching funds from local residents, we have the opportunity to expand the footprint of the building. With more space, our little library can continue to be the fixture we all need: “A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life-raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.” (Columnist Caitlin Moran) Please consider a gift that will unleash this potential!
Marc & Mary Archambault, Campaign Vice-Chairs
Marc and I are proud to serve as campaign vice-chairs for this library enhancement project. It truly is a once in our lifetime opportunity for all of us, town residents and friends alike, to make a positive impact on our town that will serve generations to come. Libraries are important cornerstones of healthy communities and this expansion will serve to strengthen and grow our town. The Pomfret Public Library has been a hub for our family, and we are excited for the additional community-building opportunities this expansion will provide. We hope you will join us in supporting this fundraising effort so that together, we can build the facility Pomfret deserves.
