Library Lovers Month

February is National Library Lovers Month. It’s our chance to thank you for your support!


We thank the 33 cities that provide locations in which Great River Regional Library operates. We thank the donors whose financial support allows us to extend the scale of our services. We also thank all the individual taxpayers and patrons who fund library operations, who are the reason we exist. It also gives us time to acknowledge legislators at all levels who support this vital service for our communities.
