This is a public library supported with private funds from the community and is owned by the Brookport Betterment Committee, Inc.
The Brookport school system is operating at a 75 percent poverty level for their lunch program, so
we organized this library 15 years ago, only charging $1 a year per person for a liberty card.
We have been operating for 15 years as an all volunteer organization. Our expenses are only around $500 amonth for heat, lights and insurance and supplies. All the pennies we can get will keep our doors open.
