One of our first projects was to raise funds to assist with the construction of our new library building in 1997.
The Library Garden in Fall
We raise funds to purchase items the library needs. The county library budget has been reduced each of the past few years.
During 2010, we provided matching funds to assist the county in building the 500 square foot expansion. This expansion enlarged the attractive children's room and cleared space for a teen room with a laptop bar where our local teens can meet.
We volunteer for library activities:
Library volunteers assist with children's programs, Book store sales, In-Library Support, landscaping and maintenance of the beautiful garden area.
We provide funds for special programs:
We fund programs for children and adults and provide matching funds to help purchase books, CD's, DVD's and other items. During 2012, we ordered extra laptops that students may use to do homework, purchased a large TV where we can show movies and provide X-Box for teens.
