Give Back to the Community

Earlier this year, as a thank you to the residents of Adams County, Rangeview Library District eliminated overdue fines. Now we ask you our customers to say thank you in return to the residents of Adams County who may be in need this year. Bring in non-perishable items to any Anythink library throughout December. We will take every food donation to Adams County Food Distribution for delivery to local families.
