The Williamsville branch of the Amherst Public Libraries depends on PRIVATE DONATIONS to operate.
Join us as we raise funds for the Williamsville Branch and celebrate life in the Village of Williamsville.

Did you know the Williamsville Branch Library relies greatly on donations for its operation?
Due largely to the generosity and support of the community, this is the “little library that could”,
as it has been able to remain open over a decade after the drastic Erie County budget cuts of 2005.

Save the Date! February 8th, 2019 and buy your tickets now for a grand fundraiser
to directly support the Williamsville Branch of the Amherst Public Libraries.
On that night, ticket holders will gather for an evening of fun and a celebration of civic pride.
Tickets are $30 pre-sale and $40 at the door.
They are available online, at all 4 Amherst Public Libraries during regular library hours, and at Village Artisans, 5560 Main St.

50/50 split; theme basket raffle; door prize; wine, beer & tea tastings & FREE valet parking!

Where is it?

We have an exciting venue this year, thanks to the generosity of our neighbors at Calvary Episcopal Church! Located just around the corner from the library, at 20 Milton Street, (corner of S. Cayuga Road), the church’s beautifully renovated Hughson Hall will be the site of the 2015 Gala. With plenty of room to spread out and socialize, this new location will offer Gala patrons a place to enjoy a comfortable and elegant evening of fun.

It’s a great night. Please join us. Because everyone knows, if you love your village, then you love your LIBRARY!
