Local teen and college attendee Ryann Hartzell has been a lifelong user of the library. When she heard about the financial trouble the Rock Springs Public Library was having, she took change into her own hands. Ryann has always had a soft spot in her heart for the library and has been active in the community. She decided she wanted to be an advocate for the library and starting planning an online funding campaign.
On May 18th Ryann launched a GoFundMe campaign in support of the Rock Springs Public Library. She created the site and will manage it throughout the funding time frame. Ryann will be a sophomore at Anderson University next fall but will be in the area throughout the summer.
“We are so lucky to have a young woman who is invested in her community. Ryann really sees the importance of the library in her community and wants to see it stay open. We are hoping to see support from the local communities as the campaign continues throughout the summer” said Haley Weisert, Library Director.
