Welcome to The Blythe Library
AT THE COMMONS
Our Mission: Building connections, broadening horizons, sparking curiosity and connecting our community through literacy and learning.
Our vision is an educated, connected community of readers, learners, doers, and dreamers.
The City of Blythe's Library vision began in 2010, with a group of dedicated volunteers and grassroots fundraising, under the leadership of Mayor Patricia Cole.
The purchase of The Blythe Library and Commons site, as well as its historical rehab was one of many projects of former Mayor Brent Weir and former Council Woman, Cindy Parham.
Through major changes, including three Mayors, various building plans, and 8 years, the vision is now a reality.
The current Blythe Library Board, and Mayor Phillip Stewart, would like to thank those past and present for their support and hard work.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Please download one of these activity color sheets and color it! When the library opens again, bring it to the library so we can post on our bulletin board. Stay tuned for more fun activities to come!
Please choose a color sheet or an activity sheet and decide which one you would like to bring into the library. We will put your name into our drawing for the summer reading program!
The Blythe Library is not funded by Richmond County, or by the City of Blythe. We currently rely on fundraising and donations. Please consider making a one time donation, or a monthly sponsorship of $10. We are also seeking $25 quarterly donations for our "Crafturday" program.
Please make a donation: We can't read in the dark! Help us keep the lights on.
