Charlotte & William Bloomberg Book Fund

We are proud to inaugurate the Charlotte & William Bloomberg Book Fund, an ongoing resource for special collections and acquisitions. This fund, supplemental to the annual budget, will allow the library staff to identify needs and improve collection areas. This fund will help to start new collections, add new formats, improve accessibility, promote literacy, celebrate Medford's history, and provide materials in diverse voices. 

 

This year, we are inviting donors to become the founders of the book fund. The first 50 donors of $1000 or more will be recognized as inaugural fund donors. Each founding donor will receive a signed limited edition print of the Book Fund bookplate by the artist Glendalys Medina. Ms. Medina is a New York based conceptual interdisciplinary visual artist, and the creator of the mosaic that will be a prominent feature of the library lobby.
