HALFWAY TO A NEW LIBRARY !! But we still need your help, please

Chenoa Public Library has raised 50% of its goal !!  
Due to our community’s tremendous support, as of November 2017, we have $403,000 in the bank for a new facility that has an expected cost of $800,000.

We are continuing our pledge drive to complete our mission of providing an accessible library to the citizens of Chenoa.

Please contact the library if you wish to help – 815-945-4253. THANK YOU.

Your financial promise to the Chenoa Public Library Building Fund is tremendously appreciated. *Contributions are tax deductible.
