DARIEN/GREENWICH, Conn. -- The first-ever Greenwich vs. Darien library fundraising competition has ended in a virtual tie.

With Greenwich raising $245,472 and Darien raising $245,543, the campaign surprised and surpassed the goals of both libraries.

“Our goal was to raise awareness that the library depends on the support of donors to provide the extraordinary services and programs enjoyed by our entire community,” said Haley Elmlinger, president of Greenwich Library Board of Trustees. “We thoroughly enjoyed this fundraising competition with our neighbors to the east and could not be more pleased by our shared success. It was truly a win-win!”

The month-long contest launched Tuesday, Dec.1, GivingTuesday, and concluded Dec. 31.

The Town of Greenwich pays for its library’s annual operating budget. The money raised during the month-long Book Bowl are part of the "Annual Appeal," which concludes June 30.
