Room Rental [7/30/16]
The Prescott City Council has asked our Library to increase revenue by charging for the use of some of the meeting rooms.  The Bump room and the Elsea room will remain free.  To learn more go to: http://www.prescottlibrary.info/how-do-i/reserve-a-meeting-room/ for details. You’ll find this page under the “How Do I?” menu on the library website, and it will be helpful to you as it offers side-by-side comparisons of the meeting room features, including fees.  

Becoming a Friend of PPL

One of the ways that you can support our library is by becoming a member of the Friends of the Library.  That membership fee will be used to provide some of services that you receive from your library.  To become a friend, go to the library and pick up a membership card at the check-out desk.  Membership is as low as $10.  Larger contributions are always appreciated. 


 
Repurposing Books

If you purchase new books for a book group or for personal reader, consider donating them to the Friends of the library so that others can read them or they can be sold to other friends. Tell your friends about the resale space for books, magazines, and dvd’s next to the coffee shop.
