Thank You! To everyone who called to check on us, sent or brought us water, coffee and care packages, volunteered to help muck out the buildings, prayed for us and sent donations - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We especially want to thank Kim Michele Richardson, our friend and Author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek (pictured below with Grace, Alita and Laura), her publisher, and all her readers who banded together to donate $30,000 through GoFundMe. Also, thank you to the hundreds of people who sent/brought thousands of books! We are still going through them. Up to date, we have cataloged over 8 thousand items for Fleming Neon! Some of the books we are keeping for the other branches too. Any books we decide not to keep, we are sharing. We are giving them away in Little Free Libraries, on our give-away shelves, and in the room that used to be our book store downstairs. I am staggered by your outpouring of love and generosity.

Read about the current state of the library in About Us: Notes from the Director.  Director, Alita Vogel gives an update about where the library is in repair and rebuild efforts after the July 2022 Flood.
