Major donors to the FLF Capital Campaign in 2018–19 are honored at their giving level on the permanent donor wall in the library entrance for helping to make the Felton Branch Library and Park a reality. The campaign raised more than $500,000 to support enhancements to both the library and park and also created a robust fund for programming and other needs.
