BATH — The Patten Free Library has met its $80,000 fundraising goal for fiscal 2016, it announced Tuesday.

The pledged funds, from about 430 donors, will go toward the library’s 33 Summer St. building, which marks its 125th anniversary this year.

The nonprofit library receives neither federal nor state aid. It gets $17 per capita from member communities Bath, Arrowsic, Georgetown, West Bath and Woolwich, accounting for 33 percent of its revenue, it reported. The balance comes from trusts and endowments, fundraisers, and the Friends of Patten Free Library.
