Message from the Pope County Library Board Chair

Image titleThank you for your vital support of our Pope County Library System.  We are pleased to serve on the Pope County Library Board of Trustees. 

Members of the board are appointed by our Pope County Judge and confirmed by the Quorum Court.  We focus on the millage and how it is used for ongoing maintenance and operations of the Pope County System Libraries in Atkins, Dover, Hector, and Russellville.  Our libraries return $8.00 in library services for every dollar invested through public funding. 

Activities have included writers workshops, genealogy lectures, educational opportunities for technology, summer reading programs, bookmobile, and many others which serve all ages and interests.  Your Pope County Library services are a good return on our investment.  

[L-R] Pope County Judge Ben Cross; Naomi Berry, Atkins Rep.; Brent Etzel, Russellville Rep.; Lawanda Dale, Dover Rep.; Mariola Payne, outgoing Dover Rep.; Kay Sunderland, Russellville Rep.; and Gary Rowlands, Hector Rep.
