    Though the majority of our funding comes from tax dollars,

we must also raise funds each year in order to continue serving

the community as we do. As an independent library operating outside

the umbrella of the Erie County Library System, we must show financial support

from local residents in order to maintain state funding.

Although times are tough, any contribution you can make

to insure the continuing excellence of McCord Memorial Library in the future,

would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
