"Whatever the cost of libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation." –Walter Cronkite

It has been an eventful year at the Buchanan District Library! We were thrilled to open our Front Street entrance and complete our elevator. These major construction milestones bring us that much closer to our long-term goal of renovating the second floor. We are grateful for the community support that allowed us to complete these important renovations.

We also amended our policies this year to become a Fine-Free Library. We believe this is the right thing to do for our patrons, and we are proud to take this step toward making the library more accessible to everyone in our community. To learn more about why we chose to go Fine Free, please click here.

The Buchanan District Library is fortunate to have supporters like you. We know you value the Library and the services it provides to our community, and for this reason we ask you to please consider a year-end gift. Your support ensures the success and continued growth of the Library—an essential organization in our community.

Your generous gift will enable the Buchanan District Library to:

  • Provide programs for children of all ages—including Storytime, Geeky Bits, Writing Workshops, Summer Reading and more
  • Offer adult programs, events, and classes
  • Purchase books and other materials for the enjoyment and education of all our patrons and
  • Provide computers and Internet access to those who do not have access at home

We strive to make certain that the Buchanan District Library is here for everyone to use and enjoy. If the Library has been here for you, then now is the time for you to be here for the Library. Our success depends on the strong support of patrons and community members like you.

Your gift makes certain that the Buchanan District Library will be here for our community now and for generations to come. Thank you for your generosity and support.
