Thank you for making a financial contribution to the Bixby Memorial Free Library.

We really appreciate it. As a small, rural library, every donation matters and every dollar goes a long, long way. Your contribution will enable us to provide more relevant and meaningful services to people who love our five towns. The one-hundred-plus-year-old Bixby remains a beautiful, beloved building where any and all are welcome to read, reflect, meet, and just have a respite when needed. We are a community and cultural anchor available to all – no matter the stage of life or life circumstances.
