You Make the Festival Possible!

The Saratoga Book Festival’s mission is to encourage a lifelong love of reading for people of all ages and interests. Over 60% of our revenue comes from individual donors just like you who value reading and the power of books to inspire, inform, delight, and challenge. Funds raised make it possible for the SBF to offer free admission to all general sessions and youth programs and to support the programs and services of the Friends of the Saratoga Springs Public Library.


Donations of all amounts are cheerfully accepted!
