Ways to Give

Roberta Fulbright Society

The Roberta Fulbright Society is the Fayetteville Public Library’s annual giving campaign. Members of RFS support the library’s initiatives by helping improve collections and expand programming in our state-of-the-art facility that has become a regional landmark. By becoming a member of the Roberta Fulbright Society, you will not only show our community that you believe in the library’s future, but you will also receive great benefits like:

  • Recognition on the FPL Lobby Donor Wall
  • Invitations to special Library events
  • Behind the scenes tour of the library with Executive Director

Capital Campaign

The Fayetteville Public Library Foundation is set to begin a capital campaign next year with a fundraising goal of $23 million thanks to the approved millage increase in August to fund library operations and an expansion.

The capital campaign will:

  • Double the size of the children’s library
  • Add a multipurpose space for community use and library programs
  • Create a new, larger teen library
  • Increase the number of spaces to meet, study, and collaborate
  • Add an innovation and maker space
  • Add a designated genealogy, state and local history library
  • Add more space to grow the materials collection
  • Create more covered parking

Gifts to the capital campaign will allow the library to continue to meet the community’s demand and provide world-class services. For information about naming opportunities and other ways to get involved, please call Christina Karnatz at 479-856-7140

This is a wonderful way to leave a legacy for a friend or family member.
