The West Falmouth Library, operating as a non-profit organization, raises approximately one third of the annual budget through fundraising events. The Library’s fiscal year runs from July 1 – June 30 during which the following major fundraising events are hosted. These events offer something for everyone to enjoy as a “fun” way to raise money in support of the Library.
In early July, our Annual Village Book Sale draws an audience of book enthusiasts and shoppers to this popular three-day event. Books, DVDs, audio books at bargain prices for all ages.
Also in July we kick off our two-week Annual Art Show and Sale. Local artists are invited to display their diverse visual arts. Purchases at the Art Show benefit both the artists and the Library.
We are now able to offer runners the ability to run with a non-profit number in the New Balance Falmouth Road Race in August as a way to raise funds for the Library. Please contact the Library Director if you would like to run for “Team WFL” this year.
In September we have our fun family event, Touch a Truck. This event was held at the Falmouth High School Parking lot and provides an opportunity for kids of all ages to explore a variety of construction and utility vehicles including a fire engine.
In mid December our Annual Holiday House Tour & Boutique is held. The House Tour features local seasonally decorated homes to visit. The Boutique, held at the Library, is part of the Tour and offers unique, handcrafted items to purchase. Please contact the Library Director if you are interested in learning how to have your home on our House Tour.
A Moveable Feast, held in April, is an evening of hors d’oeuvres and dessert enjoyed at the Library with the dinner course hosted at local homes. A silent auction is held during the event with many interesting and unique items.
PLEASE NOTE: Our 2017 events’ dates and times will be posted when our construction deadlines are known. Thank you for your patience.
