How You Can Help

To serve the community the Foundation needs the help of the community.  You can participate in the success of our library by making a tax deductable donation, becoming a member of our Society of Patrons or by  becoming a volunteer.

Your participation at any level provides the “fuel” for the “engine” mentioned above in About the Foundation.

About the Foundation

The Carthage Public Library Foundation is more than just a fund-raising and asset management entity.

We foresee being an engine driving new programs, activities, and educational opportunities for both young people and adults.  Communities need social focal points where people join to exchange ideas, learn new skills, engage in cordial constructive debate, collaborate in community projects—the library is an ideal place for such a focal point, a place for not only contemplation and learning, but also for strengthening our communities. The Foundation will enable the Carthage Public Library to become that cultural focal point.
