The D.R. Moon Memorial Library was established in 1901 through a donation from Sally F. Moon in memory of her husband, Delos R. Moon. Through the years, the library has endured upheaval and turbulent times, including a major fire soon after it was just completed. Throughout its long history, the mission and goals of the library has remained the same: to provide quality materials and services which fulfill the educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the entire community and establish an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful, and professional.
The D.R. Moon Memorial Library building is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the library leadership is dedicated to honoring our past. While honoring the library's history and giving back to the Stanley community and surrounding area through quality programming, materials, and resources, for 120 years the D.R. Moon Memorial Library has pursued improvement and growth.
This endowment fund has been established with the express purpose of continuing to build towards the library's future. Throughout the coming years, this fund will help keep the library up to date in the resources and technology it is able to offer the community as a whole. When the community needs something, whether that may be new devices of Wi-Fi hotspots to help bridge the digital divide, a workforce development program, or any number of 21st century resources, this fund will help the library provide what is needed. Thank you for helping us make a difference, and we hope to see you soon in Stanley!
