Library Donations

Monetary gifts given to the Pike County Public Library make our three branches more welcoming, better equipped, more convenient and better places to learn and grow. Your contribution to the library helps give teens a place to study after school, adults a place to use computers for job searches and ensures the library stays up to date with emerging technologies.
