More Than 100 Percent
Jefferson County Library (JCL) is thanking contributors to the 2021 Winter Giving Campaign who helped raise more than $41,000 against an original goal of $20,000. Donations will fund expanded services, programming, collections, and other projects. The library is located at 620 Cedar Avenue in Port Hadlock.
JCL has recently rolled out three new online databases, which are free with a library card and accessible from the Research & Learning tab on the library website. Here are the new databases:
