Give to the Max Day

We are participating in Give to the Max Day for the first time this year. Please consider donating to the library as we look to the future and the possibilities it holds for us! Follow this link and click on “Donate” to give online. If you would prefer to write a check, please make it out to SELCO Foundation and write Van Horn Public Library in the memo line before dropping it off or mailing it in.

Thank you all for your continued support!



What do you think?

We are working on a Strategic Plan this fall and we need your input! Please take a few minutes to fill out our Community Survey and let us know what direction you see us going.  No library experience or knowledge required.

Free Notepad

You can fill out the survey online or come in  for a paper copy of the survey here at the library. Either way, ask library staff for a small notebook as a thank you from us to you!
