“Created solely for the betterment of the Comer Library!”

Supporting the mission of the Comer Library since 1991

The B. B. Comer Memorial Library Foundation was formed in 1991 to support the mission of the library-to provide services and materials for the education, enrichment and entertainment of the people of the greater Sylacauga area. Service is free for citizens within the library’s service area—regardless of age, place of residence and socioeconomic status. Patrons come to the library from a twenty-mile radius that includes parts of four counties; yet, the funding is almost totally from the City of Sylacauga. This generous service is evidence of a long-standing commitment to an informed citizenry by municipal government officials.

 

Residents of Sylacauga are proud of their public library. After all, it is the largest, best-stocked library in the state for a town the size of Sylacauga. The knowledge explosion and expanded access possible with new technology promises far better library service, but the rising cost of materials and the initial cost of conversion creates the need for additional funding and continued upgrading of the library program.

 

You can contribute to the Foundation with gifts of cash, property, securities, or real estate. You may contribute through trust arrangements, bequests in wills and by naming the Foundation as beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your gift can be designated as an honor gift or memorial with a nice letter sent to friends and loved ones.

  • $25.00 FRIEND

  • $500.00 SUSTAINER
