The Library is always looking for area organizations and businesses to help sponsor our Library events, by some form of donation. Our idea here is that if you put into the community you will get back from the community. Please contact us if you can help. We always need flyers printed, or donations of time or funds. We are a grassroots organization and we depend on the dedication and generosity of our Sponsors, Donors and Volunteers. Can't think of something YOU can offer? Please call us and we will sure think of something you can do!
