LACF raising money for Southwest Initiative Foundation
Adrian Branch Library Renovation Project
THE LIBRARY HAS RE-OPENED!On Friday, July 14, 2017, the Adrian Branch Library held its Grand Re-Opening. More than 300 people visited the Library that day!
Since that time, we have had a lot of people stop in, people checking out as well as ordering items, and people signing up for FREE Library Cards!
Many people have asked about continued donations to the Library. We have created a separate non-budgetary account for the Adrian Branch Library, that can be added to and will be used solely for the Adrian Branch Library. This special ongoing fund was made possible through the generosity of our donators. The fundraiser through LACF will be coming to a close, but donations can still be mailed in, with checks being made out to: "Adrian Branch Library;" 214 Maine Avenue, P.O. Box 39, Adrian, MN 56110. Future donations will be used to add special items, services, and programs for the Library. The Library always welcomes donations for books, so that we can continue with our goal of replacing worn out copies of classics, children's favorites, teen series, graphic novels, and special editions for adults. All donations are tax-deductible. We hope that this fund, which will accrue interest, will continue to contribute to the Library for years to come.

Approximately 200 students made four to five trips each, and carried arm loads of books in a continuous line on that sunny afternoon.
