Sponsorship Opportunities

Taste of Knowledge fundraiser

A Taste of Knowledge, this year’s major fundraiser at the Washington County Free Library will take place the evening of Saturday, April 8. A Taste of Knowledge features a trivia contest with teams competing for the title ‘Washington County Free Library Trivia Champions 2017.’ Also available that evening will be an opportunity to taste a selection of locally produced beer and wines paired with light hors d’oeuvres. The Friends of the Library will host a silent auction throughout the evening. Sponsors are encouraged to enter a team into the contest.

Libraries are many things to their communities. We offer the practical information people need to improve their quality of life and to increase individual options in a complex society—information about health, education, business, child care, computers, the environment, looking for a job... and much more.

As a sponsor, your donations help us to provide additional programs at the library. Last year the library offered over 2,400 programs with over 41,000 people attending one or more of those programs. Whether enjoying one of the many concerts, classes, workshops, children’s story-time and literacy classes, book clubs and other programs, or simply a forum where people could come and sit, talk, and read our citizens place a great deal of importance on the value of a comfortable public library facility where they can gather not only to read but to enjoy a variety of cultural experiences.

We invite you to consider joining our annual fundraiser with one of these great sponsorship opportunities. Please contact us to today to see how you can partner with your library!
