The library is one of the only free public services left in our community. Along with providing a large collection of books for circulation, we offer services such as, but not limited to: Homebound Delivery Service, Board Game Collections and Computer, Genealogy and Gardening Classes. Monthly giving is crucial to the ongoing operating costs of running a library. Simplify your giving by joining our Cottonseed Coalition and set up a recurring donation today!



We are always looking for energetic people to help with the planning and chairing of our events throughout the year. If you would like to volunteer your time, we’d love to have you! Foundation events not only allow us to raise money to support and grow our library, but to share the Athens-Limestone Public Library’s dynamic resources with the community. Want to donate your time?
