Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Julia L. Butterfield’s many gifts to our local community included a generous allocation in her will to establish the beautiful Georgian-style brick building that houses the library named in her honor. But the vibrant community hub that Julia’s dream brought to life a century ago could not exist today—or tomorrow—without the continued support of friends like you.

THANK YOU for including the Butterfield Library in your giving plans. Your generous gift—in any amount—sustains services, programming, materials, and indoor and outdoor spaces designed to improve the lives of every member of our community.

[Your donation to Butterfield Library, a 501 (c) (3) organization, is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.]


Judy B. Meyer, President                                               Marjorie E. Gage, Secretary
Dennis P. Gagnon, Vice President                              Catherine Rossi Platt, Treasurer
