During these difficult times we understand the effect that Covid 19 has had on our personal lives and also businesses that are financially struggling due to the closures and the current state of the economy.
Have you considered how some of our community services have been impacted as well? Funds for the Library have dropped significantly. We are asking you, our wonderful community members, to consider a monetary gift to help our local library in our time of crisis.
Stimulus checks are coming out soon, so would you consider a donation for one or more of these areas? The Library appreciates anything you can give.
$50.00 would help cover the cost of ink for the printers
$100.00 covers needed supplies for the month
$130.00 will cover the cost of one month's internet
$250.00 for one month's utility costs
$350.00 will cover the new books ordered for one month
$750.00 per year for library circulation system
$1,400.00 for our new eBooks and audio books subscription for one year.
A donation to help pay for building maintenance repairs: furnace repairs or a new furnace
Your donation can be made by cash, check or credit card. Simply mail your donation to the Library or stop by during library hours to personally make a donation.
Thank you for your support! We greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us out.

Library Update: Due to the increasing number of Covid 19 cases, we will be implementing some changes at the Library. Only one person/family and one computer user will be allowed in the Library at any one time. There will be a 30-minute time limit. Computers are available by appointment. All other services will be handled at the door/lobby area (copies, faxes, etc.). Curbside service will remain available to individuals who do not wish to enter the Library. Doors will be locked when we meet capacity. Please call or knock and let us know you are here. All services are first come/first served. When assisting individuals with technical questions, Library staff will not handle personal items such as cell phones. Please maintain a 6-foot distance between yourself and staff. For example, if you need help on the computer. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! Call 743-2421 for assistance or questions.
