Now that Dothan’s Houston-Love Memorial Library has secured enough money to build two new libraries, organizers know they will need money to provide materials and services.
The library has launched a fundraising campaign known as “Bricks for a Brighter Tomorrow” that allows residents or groups to purchase bricks that will line the entrance to both libraries for as little as $100.
