Give Back

Financial Gifts

Be a part of RCPL’s story! Direct financial gifts are always welcomed via our Friends of the Library organization.  With less than 10% of the Library’s annual revenue coming from state or federal assistance, financial contributions can make significant impacts on our ability to expand programs, offer more materials, upgrade facilities and fixtures, and more.

Please make gifts payable to:

Friends of the Russell County Public Library
PO Box 1113
Jamestown, KY  42629

Or contact Library Director Lindsey Westerfield to discuss how your gift can make a difference at (270) 343-7323 or

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Russell County Public Library is a separate, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization formed for the purpose of promoting RCPL through financial support, advocacy efforts, and volunteer services.  Friends of the Library meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 5:00 pm and are open to the public.

Can’t attend a meeting, but still want to give back?  The Friends of the Library sponsor Amazon Smile and Kroger Community Rewards accounts, both of which directly impact fundraising efforts on behalf of the Library.
