Sponsorship opportunities

Community Block Party: June 29, 2024

The third annual Jim Roselle Community Block Party will be held on June 29, 2024!

In 2023, we welcomed over 1000 people to the event!

Support a day of community-building and educational fun, bringing together local nonprofit organizations, music performers, artists, storytellers, food trucks, and more! This year, we’ll welcome local vendors for an artisan market. 

The 2024 Jim Roselle Community Block Party planning is underway. We are preparing programming, including a community art tent, games, an imagination station with stories and summer reading signups, garden activities, and more.

Your sponsorship makes this day a reality!

Fredonia School of Music Concert Series

We are excited to announce a new collaborative program at the library with the Fredonia School of Music. 

Fredonia School of Music will bring five of its ensembles to the library for a monthly evening of music. Each performance will include a “meet & greet” with students and teachers.

Your sponsorship supports outreach to local schools so that students are encouraged to attend this free opportunity to meet college musicians and enjoy unique and enriching performances.

Haunted Library: October 26, 2024

In 2024, the library will hold the 3rd Annual Haunted Library: a fun, family-friendly event that brings characters from books to life.

The 2023 Haunted Library event was a big success, as we sold out of tickets and welcomed over 300 people!

This year, we invite guests to journey down our Yellow Brick Road. Your support keeps tickets for this event low-cost so everyone in our community can enjoy a hauntingly good time while celebrating the magic of storytelling.

Community Gardens

We are expanding our gardens and outdoor community space at the library!

In 2023, we added a patio, walkway, and gardens, and this year, we are extending the gardens around the whole building and adding new signage for a teaching garden, a vegetable-raised bed, another seating area, and more.

The gardens and patio at the library were the highlight of 2023, and hundreds of people visited our new community space. Seeing people of all ages enjoying the native plants, attending programs on the patio, or reading a book on the new benches inspired us to expand the gardens in 2024.

Your sponsorship will purchase supplies to make the teaching garden a magical place in 2024!  Your business name and logo will be featured on outdoor garden signage.

Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading encourages community members of all ages to fall in love with reading.

The library’s eight-week program explores how literacy is everywhere. Literacy includes talking, socializing, listening, reading, writing, drawing, computer games, and critical thinking. We aim to help the community grow, especially children who need many opportunities to make reading a fun and magical journey.

We want to thank everyone who participated in 2023, and here are some of the highlights:

Collaboration with LEAP Program: The library partnered with the Jamestown Public Schools’ LEAP program for our Summer Reading program. We had 346 participants who read 1,066,740 minutes throughout the summer.  

Read for Beads:  Children received a bead to put on their necklace for every hour of a reading and learning activity completed. This summer, 1,286 beads were handed to 218 children. Children read for 71,792 minutes and completed 266 activities.  

Adult Summer Bingo: In 2023, we updated our Adult Summer Reading program and introduced a Bingo Sheet for adults to complete instead of submitting book reviews. The response to the Adult Summer Bingo was phenomenal. We had the highest participation ever, with 77 adults participating and reading over 280 books.
