The McPherson Public Library
Endowment Fund was started by members of the Board of Trustees in 1983 and
established through a community fund drive.
The Board stipulated that no interest revenues would be available for
use by the library until the Endowment reached $100,000, which it did six years
later in 1989.
Bestselling author George Plimpton autographs copies of his latest book at the library as part of a benefit speaking engagement for the endowment fund in 1986.
The goal of the Endowment is to
insure that the citizens of McPherson have access to a superior array of library materials, resources, services, and facilities.
The Endowment serves to enhance the quality of the collections and services provided by our library.
