The mission of the Westerly Library and Wilcox Park is to stimulate the intellect and imagination by providing access to literature, information, nature and the arts.
The Westerly Public Library is a great resource for the community -- it has something for everyone of every age. Ever wonder how you can support the Library? Donations and gifts are always welcomed to supplement the Library's budget and your donation is an investment in the community which will be used to enhance the Library's collections and services.

IRA Charitable RolloverIRA Charitable Rollover
Donors age 70 1/2 and up can direct money straight from their IRA to a qualified charity. That amount does count towards the donor's minimum distribution, but no federal income tax is due on the distribution. This is a unique, tax-wise way to give that is available for 2013 only.
Planned GivingVarious types of planned gifts are possible, ranging from a simple bequest in a will to charitable trusts and Pooled Income Funds. An effective gift plan may increase current income or provide retirement income, while earning a current tax deduction and providing for a future gift to the Memorial and Library Association of Westerly.
Memorial & Celebration BooksMany people like to donate money to purchase books to celebrate special birthdays or to honor the death of friends and family members. The personís name is placed on a bookplate with an appropriate message.
