Welcome to the Leon Public Library -- Your 21st Century Library


Over the holidays, we had set up a 'Giving Tree' in the children's department.  The tree contained ornaments describing books we would like to add to our collection.  We still have ornaments available. Stop in and pick an ornament you would like to donate to the Library.  We have indicated the purchase price on the back of the ornament for your convenience.  A donation of the book will allow you to complete the ornament indicating who donated the book and on whose behalf.  Come by and see the improvements made to the children's department.

This is a good time to consider a donation to our library.  The M. N. Viner Endowment fund with the South Central Iowa Community Foundation (SCICF) was established to benefit the Leon Public Library.  Please see our page regarding donations to this fund. As you consider a donation to our library, please consult your tax adviser regarding the current deductability of any contributions you may make. Currently we are working to match a two for one grant from SCICF.  We need to raise $1,500 by April of 2016 to receive a $3,000 match from them.

Currently SCICF is holding a contest for a $1,000 donation to any Decatur County endowment fund. There will be an application form included in Leon Journal-Reporter in the January 27th issue. Please consider an entry for the library's M. N. Viner Endowment fund.

Again, we invite you to visit your 21st Century Library.
