Our Library is Expanding! Help us by Owning a Square Foot.

Libraries are more than shelves of books and rows of computers. When a community invests in the Library, they are making an investment in humanity. The Gardendale-Martha Moore Public Library has been investing and serving the community since 1959.

The Gardendale-Martha Moore Public Library belongs to all of us. It is a wonderful place filled with books, reference materials, programs, computers and access to more information than you can imagine. It is not only for ourselves, but our future children and grandchildren, and many generations to come.

Join your friends and neighbors in helping your Library with a contribution of $20 for each square foot. You will be making an important contribution for yourself, your family and your community by helping to expand the Library Building. You will leave a lasting legacy for many generations.
