The Suffield Public Library Foundation (SPLF) wishes to acknowledge Ron and Jackie Birmingham for their generous donation of $25,000 for ongoing and future improvements to our town library. Ron and Jackie have lived in Suffield for several decades, having raised their daughters, Wendy and Sarah, here and who all have participated actively in community life. They are committed to keeping library services supported and want it “home” (asap) at Kent Memorial Library, but more urgently, they want to keep program momentum supported to provide continued quality and accessibility of services.
Among the benefits of their substantial gift to our community, the SPLF is commissioning a beautiful handmade Thomas Moser rocking chair that will sit in our newly reopened building once the final work is completed. The SPLF board members express their deep appreciation to the Birmingham family for their generous gift.
As the library enters the final phases of its recent work to rectify handicapped access issues and environmental hazards, the SPLF continues its efforts to provide a wide variety of improvements to this vital resource for our community and welcomes donations from community members wishing to support its mission.
