Annual Century Club Donation

Century Club President Noreen Patterson, Library Director Natalie Curran, Century Club Treasurer Janet Moyer

In 1914, a group of young ladies formed a reading group that evolved into the founding group of The Phoenix Public Library. Calling themselves the Century Club,  they raised money to establish a New York State Chartered Library in the Village of Phoenix. The Century Club has remained a strong presence at the Library and continues to raise money every year to help with the costs of maintaining a modern library facility for our community. This year the Century Club is pleased to donate $1,500 to the operating fund and $500 to the Summer Reading Program. Thank you for your support.
