Unfortunately, the contract with the town was not approved by all parties. This is a political problem that we hope will be solved soon.

The Friends have entered a contract with the Town of Wickenburg to provide $117,500/year to pay half the cost of keeping the public library open through FY 2014-2015. The library is only 3 percent of the town budget, but has taken a terrible hit in the economic downturn. The staff has been reduced to 3 clerks who keep the library open 42.5 hours/week; volunteers provide a lot of assistance. The town has budgeted for and hopes to attract a professional librarian to improve contact with the schools and improve electronic access to materials. This is a small rural town, and any outside help will be appreciated.

Funding an endowment would be a goal.
