As the Hale County Library Friends’ Drive is winding down, the Library Board and staff sincerely express immense gratitude for the outpour of community support. Anyone still wanting to donate is welcome to do so at any time and with any amount. All donations contribute to the library’s ability to support our community with programming, print, on-line resources, and assistance with locating all types of information. We thank our Individual and Family donors, including Mrs. Voncille Battle, Mrs. Ruby Washington, Ms. Judy Lynn Prince, Mr. Leon Rainey, Mr. and Mrs. Don Ballard, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Barnette, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Cochran, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Whaley, Mrs. Alfreda Morris, Ms. Johnnie Hill, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Henry, Mr. and Mrs. Greg Whitis, Mrs. Anne Jay, Mr. and Mrs. Ronny Hallmon.

We also much appreciate the donations from organizations and businesses in Greensboro and Hale County. Peoples Bank of Greensboro has been a generous and regular donor to the library for over twenty years. Alabama Power has funded a number of smaller and some larger projects. The Greensboro Lions Club, the Veritas Club, and the Excelsior Sunday School Class are also regular generous donors. We welcome and appreciate the Hale County ERA as a new donor this year. We also want to thank all those who brought in calendars to recycle. They are always much appreciated by your neighbors and friends. Please remember that all donations to the library make a real difference for the community. Without your support, many of the services that your community depends upon might not be there. Whether you need a good book to read, a resource for your student’s report, an Internet connection to file a job application or to find a necessary form, or even to look up an address or phone number, the librarians are ready to help. Your donations are also deductible.
