Make A Difference

We are collecting donations all summer to help children and teens who visit the Child Advocacy Center. This is a non-profit organization that provides access to critical services and raises community awareness to prevent and reduce child abuse and neglect in Southern Missouri. Each donation earns points and provides necessities to those most in need. Stop by or call a library branch for more information.
