At his death, C. Bascom Slemp left a trust with the stipulation that the money be used to help the people of Lee and Wise Counties which he served as Congressman.   Due to his far sightedness, the community has benefited from his assistance.   The library is one such recipient and is one of nine branches of The Lonesome Pine Regional Library System.  The collection consists of 70,000 items which serve the region.
