The Wyoming Public Library Endowment Challenge
“Why should I contribute?” you might ask.
- Every dollar raised by The Library Foundation for Campbell County libraries will be matched by the state up to $295,000. Once libraries across the state raise $2.3 million, each library will receive an additional $100,000. The total possible amount Campbell County can receive is $690,000!
- This is a fantastic opportunity to bring your tax dollars back to our libraries and use them to: maintain our professional workforce; provide the services required by our changing community’s needs; raise awareness of the diverse library opportunities.
- “Rainy day” funds will help maintain the outstanding services provided by Campbell County libraries through our “boom and bust” economy.
- These funds will provide county libraries with discretionary monies. Campbell County generously supports its libraries but these funds ensure your libraries autonomy in years to come.
For more information or to make your tax deductible donation, contact CCPLS Director Patty Myers at 687-9201. You may also download our pledge form and mail it to us.

Gifts of books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and books-on-cd are welcome and become the property of Campbell County Public Library. They must be in good condition, books are not acceptable if they have water damage, smoke damage or mildew odor. All donated items are reviewed to determine if they fit into our collection. If so, they are cataloged and placed on the shelves. If they do not fit our collection criteria, The Library Foundation, Inc. may sell them at their annual book sale or place them on the library's giveaway shelves.
Monetary donations can be designated toward the purchase of memorial books, art work, computers, programs, endowment fund, or special projects. Checks should be made payable to The Library Foundation, Inc.
Choosing to remember a loved one or friend with a memorial book given to the library provides a lasting gift to honor that person. Great care is taken by library staff to select a book the deceased would have enjoyed. Suggested titles or subjects are appreciated. A memorial bookplate is placed in the book and an acknowledgment card is sent to the family telling them the name of the book and the donor's name.
For more information contact Pat Brose by e-mail or by calling 687-9228.
