The Friends of the Library are accepting donations for the library. If you would like to help send donations payable to: The Friends of the Library, to either address listed below. All donations are tax-deductible. Gurley has 958 registered voters. We still owe on many things and need final touches on others, we would appreciate any support you can give. The land (with water and sewage hook-ups) has been graciously donated by the Community Bank of Gurley. The new site consists of brick and meet all safety standards as well as fire codes and has handicap accessibility. The Friends of the Library will sponsor several projects and events throughout the year. At least a thousand people visit the library each year, if they would contribute only $10 each we could improve our library. Stop by, one block over from Hwy 72 behind Piggly Wiggly and between City Hall and Community Bank, to see how far we have come. This library needs your financial help. The children's education depends on YOU!
You have to be an active member to vote or be nominated at the September meeting for any available office.
