ARBYRD, MO (KAIT) -

The city of Arbyrd opened a community library in December last year and needs your help to keep it running.

City officials decided this after a county library in town consolidated with a library in Cardwell.

This means they do not get government funding and everything runs on donations.

City Clerk Flora Smith said they have enough books; however, they need furniture and upkeep material.

“It's very important we get donations because that's how we are surviving,” Smith said. “It's the only way we are going to grow and get any bigger.”

Right now, the library sits in a room at city hall.

Anyone who wants to donate can send donations to P.O Box 338 in Arbyrd.
