The Scholarship Committee accepts bottle donations all year.  Drop off your bag or box on the back porch of the town office.  Last year the Scholarship Committee raised over $1500 from bottle donations.  Thanks to all of you who support this effort.

Increase Robinson Library and Neighborhood House

The Increase Robinson Library and Neighborhood House has closed for the 2018 season. The Trustees and volunteers extend a sincere thank you to all who visited, toured and borrowed books. A great deal of cleaning and organizing took place this summer, and there are big plans for 2019. Anyone in need of information can send a request to: Diana <dttolman@megalink.net>, Kathryn <Kathryn@IncreaseRobinsonLibrary.org>, or <help@increaserobinsonlibrary.org>.  Also, when there is a vehicle in the yard, knock on the door and you will be welcomed inside. The Library will open again in June 2019 (there is no heat source).
