The story of the Leavenworth Public Library is one of sustained and effective community collaboration.
A citizen’s group founded the first library. They advocated for the Carnegie facility and a local tax to fund service. Voters approved that funding and the City has maintained it for 122 years.
The current facility was donated by a local businessman and voters demonstrated their support again, approving a bond issue to convert the former grocery store into a functioning library. At the same time, a volunteer Foundation raised money for furniture and equipment.
The next chapter in the story starts now and we invite you to take part in making it a success.
