About Our Services

Message from the Director of Branches

Dana Gann | dgann@popelibrary.org | 479-968-4368

As Director of Branches, I oversee both facilities and services offered at all branches. Our branches attempt to meet the needs of their communities to: “Learn, Know, Gather, and Grow” with limited space, staff, and facilities. Patrons range from the very young enjoying our early learning programs to senior citizens continuing life-long learning. They come seeking continued education, employment, entertainment, shelter, testing, Wi-Fi, word processing, printing, copying, and fax services as well as social interaction using both the physical and virtual facilities. For the patron that lacks access to our facilities, we offer the Bookmobile and Books-by-Mail. Patrons can request materials from any of our branches and from libraries from around the world through our Interlibrary Loan program.
