Friends of the Clark County Library Current Projects
Library Open House and Costume Contest
On October 31st, 2017 the Friends of the Library hosted an open house and costume contest at the Arkadelphia branch of the Clark County Library. We were able to provide 5 volunteers, refreshments, and trick-or treat candy for the event.
Fundraiser: Costume Contest Voting
The Arkadelphia branch library is currently displaying photographs from the Halloween Costume Contest. Members of the public are encouraged to stop by the library and vote for their favorite by donating their spare change!
Advocacy: Increase Library Funding
Due to increased costs and stagnant funding, the Clark County Library has had significantly cut their budget. The Friends of the Library would like to see a voluntary tax passed to support the library and start a regular giving campaign.
Current Funding Goal: Fund the 2018 Library Summer Reading Program
Due to budget cuts, the Library has had to cut programming funding from its 2018 budget. The Friends current goal is to raise enough money to pay for the program.
Fundraiser: Cupcake Sale
Daylynn's Bakery donated 30 dozen cupcakes that were presold. All proceeds were donated to the library.
Fundraiser: Spring Big Book Sale
The Friends of the Library organized and sponsored a used book sale during Crawfest. This book sale was hugely successful and will probably become an annual event.
