Wadsworth Library Long Range Plan

Wadsworth Library Building Up for the Future

Wadsworth Library is launching a capital campaign as we prepare to Build Up for the Future. This project will add a second floor in the 1996 addition to the library. This will become the children’s library, roughly tripling the space available for Children’s Services. The total cost of the project, including new furnishings, will be about $1.5 million. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and a NY State Library Construction Aid grant, we only need to raise $442,000. Anyone interested in donating can contribute directly to the Wadsworth Library Children’s Building Fund, which is managed by the Rochester Area Community Foundation, or Friends of Wadsworth Library’s GoFundMe page, or by making a check out directly to Wadsworth Library.
