Your Help is Needed!

In this age of budget cuts and curtailed services, the outlook for a small rural library can be grim.  Funded through the county general fun, the Grant County Library is on a restricted budget and must fight to keep it's doors open to the public.

The Grant County Library Foundation, Inc., was established to aid the Library by providing a conduit for private contributions.  Donors can support the Library through tax deductible contributions, memorials, bequests and other gifts.  The Foundation, a non profit organization, also works to keep the Library in the public ey by organizing fund raising events and activities, and is actively involved in projects to expand and improve the Library.

Whether you are an often or occasional user of the Library, you must realize how important the Library is to our rural communities.  Please consider becoming a friend of your Library and  by finding a way to support this valuable part of your neighborhood.
