Each year we must raise funds in order to continue serving the community as we do.
We are an independent library, and our state funding is based on community
support. Although times are tough, any contribution you can make to insure
the continuing excellence of McCord Memorial Library in the future,
would be very much appreciated.

I would like to launch a new book discussion group.
If interested in meeting with others who also love books
and want to share ideas and opinions, this would be a great place to begin.
We plan to meet at McCord Memorial Library in the Hall Holtham Room
the 3rd week after New Years, January 20, @ 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Title will be
announced in the January Books & Banter Newsletter and on our website.
Any and all are welcome to join the community conversations.
Consider making a
Memorial Donation to McCord Library.
This donation would be a
lasting tribute to a family
member or friend.
It can also be In Honor of
someone or a special event
We have received many donations in Lori Barnes’s name.
These will be used to purchase a special memorial feature for the library.
If anyone would like to donate to this special project,
ask at the circulation desk for more details.
