Donate to the Foundation

Your gift to the library though the Harlan Community Library Foundation means the difference between good libraries and great libraries. With private support, we can expand our collections to include more of what patrons want in materials and technology, and serve the needs of children, teens, adults, and people with special needs.


The Harlan Community Library Foundation was established as a 501c3 not for profit under Iowa law in the fall of 1984. 

Its purpose is to encourage gifts, endowments and bequests to the library and support the development of library services and facilities for the community.


The Foundation Board consists of eight members, seven of these are voting members.


  • Everette Carroll, President
