DAVID BUDDS, CENTER, recently made a $90,000 donation to help support the programs offered at Pana Carnegie-Schuyler Public Library. The money will be used for after school and reading programs for children and adults.

Through the generosity of David Budds’ donation of $90,000 to the Pana Carnegie-Schuyler Public Library, programs will be provided for years to come.
David felt the children in the community needed a place to come and enjoy time reading and socializing with their friends. He has fond memories of the library and wants other children to enjoy the Pana library. He learned due to budget constraints, children’s and adult programming wasn’t being offered as much as the library would like. He decided to take care of the financial part of the programming if the library staff would cover the rest.
Library hours are Monday, Thursday and Friday, 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
