We want to pause to thank our patrons for supporting services by attending a program, talking to your representative, or congressman, and for donating almost ½ of the needed funds that were cut from the budget this year. Patrons can still donate toward the still needed $3,439.44 to maintain the Book Fund, training for the Staff and patrons, and programming.

How You Can Help:
Tell you Representative about how important library services are to the 30,000 patrons in Pope County for computer training, access to the Internet, and access to information. Last year, PCLS Circulated 29,186 books and other items saving the Citizens of Pope County $7.4 million dollars in book purchases. Help us to maintain services that bridge the 30 Million Word Gap which determines whether a child lives in poverty or “makes it”.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far 66% of the funds have been raised.  We are raising $10,000 in 2015 to replace State Aid funds that have been reduced, and $25,000 to replace funds in 2016. Thank you all again. We love serving you, and are grateful for your support in this endeavor. If you would like to contribute, you may do so:
