Purpose of the Event

This event will serve to raise money for the Starkville-Oktibbeha County Public Library System to fund special projects that, due to budgetary restrictions, are unable to be funded from the library’s general operating budget. Funds from this event could be used to supplement the library collection, purchase furniture, programming materials, additional training for staff, and equipment the library needs.
