The Carnegie Public Library Capital Resource Fund

Mission Statement:  The library is funded every year by public tax dollars from the City of Big Timber and Sweet Grass County.  The goals of the CPL Capital Resources Fund are to fund programs, special projects and necessities not provided by the regular budget.  The monies will be used to enhance library operations above and beyond what the budget provides. 

Second, is our goal to create an Endowment Fund that will provide for the library facility for now and future generations. 

You may specify where you would like your funds to go, for example, in the memo portion of your check you can designate Endowment, Current Needs or any big project that may be forthcoming.  You may have seen the beautiful bronze in front of our library which was purchased to commemorate our Centennial with funds designated for that purpose.
