Future Funding

Fayetteville Public Library is currently looking at funding options for the future. In 2014, the Board of Trustees approved the creation of a long-term revenue committee tasked with exploring possible sources of revenue in addition to looking at possible cuts to operating expenses. After considering a number of possibilities, the committee presented its recommendations to the Board of Trustees on May 17, 2015. A summary of the committee's recommendations is available.


Of course, we appreciate any feedback from the community as we consider these proposals. You can submit feedback on our website or leave a comment card at Fayetteville Public Library.
