Donations can DOUBLE for the Hamilton Public Library with your help!

Donors to Hamilton Public Library’s Building Fund can double their money thanks to a matching fund grant established at Mills County State Bank.

This is a terrific opportunity for the Hamilton Public Library to finish raising the funds needed to expand and renovate.  The fund has been established to ensure that our county has the library facility needed to meet our community's growing needs.

Every gift to the expansion project will be doubled.

There has never been a better time to make your donation to provide twice the benefits as it will now. So, remember to put the library at the top of your list and Let’s Build It!

"BOO for Books" was a great success this year! Thank you to all our wonderful donors, especially the Hamilton Friends of the Library for $$$ and Extraco Banks for collecting new book donations. We gave away 256 new books to every child who visited the library during Trick or Treat Around the Square, last Friday, October 26th. We LOVED having all your little goblins!
