Our holiday week is filled with celebration. Buck Memorial Library will be installing heat pumps very soon! This project is made possible through a $15,000.00 grant from the Association for Rural & Small Libraries through the generosity of a regional partner foundation.
The Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) builds strong communities through professional development and elevating the impact of rural and small libraries. ARSL recognizes the uniqueness of small and rural libraries and is committed to providing an environment that encourages excellence within this community of practice, supporting their goals of service and speaking on behalf of this important constituency. Since 1 in 3 public libraries in the U.S. serve a population of fewer than 2,500 people, there is a great opportunity to support these library professionals that are often overlooked. We believe in the value of rural and small libraries and strive to create resources and services that address national, state, and local priorities for libraries situated in rural communities.

Donating Books to BML
For those interested in helping replace our collection due to our latent mold issue please read below. We appreciate your assistance.
Please contact the library before showing up with books, we are small, and have limited processing and storage space.
We only accept books in pristine condition, minimal marking, no stains, no smell.
Hardcovers are best, with dust jackets, paperbacks only if they are in very good condition
We do have an evolving list which we are happy to share, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Consider making a cash donation (see the support us button at the bottom of our page).
