The Laton Society
In the summer of 2017, the Library received a gift from longtime patron and supporter Ursula Marie Laton. She had the forethought to name the Library in her estate plan. Her step-daughter Jean Woody and husband Bill Woody handled the trust. The family's wish was to establish an unrestricted endowment. The Laton Endowment was created with a gift of $537,674 and is invested at the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The endowment provides yearly income for critical Library purchases.
Let us thank you now for your gift after your lifetime.
