We are so very sorry to inform everyone that the library has had to close. The building has been deemed unsafe due to structural damage. Both the insurance company and the Lee County Building Commissioner have said that the building will be condemned. The Town of Loachapoka is graciously looking into providing a new and improved building for us to use. Please be aware that this will take time to accomplish. I will be posting here as more information is provided. Thank you for your time and patience as we go forward. AB
We are excited to announce that the "Friends of Loachapoka Public Library, Inc" has applied for nonprofit status and can officially accept donations. Any money donated to the FOTLPL will be tax deductible and will go straight to making the Loachapoka Public Library successful (including rent, utilities, new books, and paying a part-time librarian).
Please make checks out to FRIENDS OF LOACHAPOKA PUBLIC LIBRARY, INC. We appreciate all support we receive to make the library sustainable for years to come.
We are coming up on our first year anniversary of being open, and we cannot believe how much the library has grown. Read a fantastic story posted by the Opelika-Auburn News HERE.
Former Lee County Volunteers in Service to America generously donated $350 to the town of Loachapoka to be used toward the library. Read the full story from the OA News HERE.
We are being featured in the Auburn Plainsman newspaper! Click HERE for the full post about our partnership with AU Women's Basketball player, Blanche Alverson. This young woman's book drive, "Ballin' For Books," has helped the library tremendously.
