Donate to the Foundation
Your gift to the library though The Public Library Foundation means the difference between good libraries and great libraries. With private support, we can expand our collections to include more of what patrons want in materials and technology, and serve the needs of children, teens, adults, and people with special needs.
The MCPL Foundation is a non-profit organization and has 501(c)3 status based on the Internal Revenue Service Code. The Foundation was started in 1987 by an anonymous donation to support the development and maintenance of a history collection which evolved into our current Archives. The Foundation now supports the entire Library, because the Archives is funded by the Library and its' employee is a Library Employee. Currently, the Foundation is helping to fund the renovation project.
Donations to the Foundation can be mailed to Mary Markwalter, Library Director, Mason City Public Library, 225 2nd St. SE, Mason City, IA 50401, and checks should be made out to the Mason City Public Library Foundation.
