During community unrest in Ferguson Missouri the library remained open and caught the attention and heart of the nation. Nearly $400K in donations poured in.

Here is the message of thanks from librarian Scott Bonner:

We are flabbergasted and heartened by the amazing support that the Ferguson Municipal Public Library District has received…..

The library’s Board of Trustees has formed a strategic planning committee to judiciously allocate funding for the good of our community, within the library’s mission. Our first priority is to bring in a full-time children’s librarian, which will radically enhance our ability to help the people of Ferguson, and increase monies devoted to community-focused programming.
