Pope County Library System Foundation (PCLSF) Mission

The Citizens of Pope County look to the Pope County Library System as a Foundation upon which they can build their future and have the tools they need in life.

The Pope County Library System Foundation is a private non-profit corporation committed to supporting the funding of the Library System that is out of the realm of tax dollar support such as building or renovating library buildings, and supporting library programming endeavors for all ages to increase literacy in the Arkansas River Valley. The support of the Foundation works hand-in-hand with the Pope County Library Millage but does not replace Pope County’s responsibility for continued funding of the Pope County Library System, and serves as a catalyst for attracting private funding from individuals, businesses, organizations and foundations to enhance library services for our community.
