Funding Goal Reached!
The Jessie F. Hallett Memorial Library
Successfully reached their 2015

We reached out to our community to help sustain the materials, programming and technology that you have come to count on in your local public Library.  How did you help us? You:

• Joined our JFHML Friends Foundation

• Donated quality materials for our used bookstore-Backstreet Books

• Attended and supported our programs

• Purchased a memorial shelf plaque

• Donated to our Jingle Books campaign

(held each November-December)

• Became a library advocate and helped us to educate others on our funding gap.

• Shared your “library stories” with us

• Visited our website at

By working together,
ANYTHING is possible!

Each year we work together with the Hallett Trust, patrons and community members, local cities & townships, volunteers, board, staff and Friends and we ask your help in “shelving the gap.” Each time $1,000 is raised by the Library and Friends, a book is shelved on the large display at the front charging desk.  With an Anything is Possible  attitude, the JFHML has once again successfully reached its goal. As your community Library we will continue to provide up-to-date technology, great programming and top notch materials, including e-books, an online card catalog, ipads,  Le Connection wifi internet café, Backstreet Bookstore and partnerships with Independent School District #182, the Otto Bremer Foundation and the Initiative Foundation. Our new electronic sign is a visible presence to help us communicate all your local Library has to offer.
