After learning last week that there would be no funding for the month of July, Muskingum County libraries are looking to the community for help. The six public libraries have started a program called "Bestow A Book, Enliven A Library". Blair Tom, Public Relations at John McIntire Library explains, "Interested people can donate money to the "Bestow a Book" collection in any of the six public libraries in Muskingum County or donate a gift to "Enliven the Library" and that will contribute to the long-term future of the library. Those funds would be deposited for the ongoing maintenance of our public libraries." The program is ongoing and Tom says no gift is too small. Forms are available in any of the public libraries or you can have them mailed to you by contacting the library.
