The Public Library at Tellico Village is unique from almost any other public library. The library is supported by the non-profit corporation known as the Friends of the Tellico Village Library. Ownership of the building, the collections, programs, and most of the operating expenses of the library, are the financial responsibility of the Friends. This unique relationship of support for a public library exists because the library is located in a rural setting, outside of a municipality, and is therefore without resources from a city tax base.
Donations of any size are welcome. Courtyard Bricks and Giving Tree Leaves are very popular. See the particulars below.

All gifts large and small are important. You can establish a lasting legacy now or for a future date. There are several ways of doing this with the most common being through a will.
Some people leave a specific dollar amount and others leave a percentage of any assets left over after they have provided for the family. Some people give something they own such as a car, property, or a house. Others leave life insurance, stock, or another financial investment. You should consult your own tax and legal counsel for the method of giving that is most appropriate for your own financial situation.
