Ingersoll Circle: Give the Gift of Discovery and Learning


Paula Silver "I remember the excitement of getting my first library card at the DeKalb branch when I was five. Seventy years later, I am thrilled each time I see Central Library’s reading room filled with students. I know the library is providing the environment and resources for them to become successful adults. My legacy gift is my way of acknowledging the role Brooklyn Public Library played in my life and supporting its essential role in the Brooklyn community." —Paula Silver, Ingersoll Circle Member

Ingersoll Circle members enjoy invitations to special events throughout the year, an Ingersoll Circle Tea, opportunities to go behind the scenes at BPL, personal access to BPL staff and recognition in our annual report.
