Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is an organization of citizens formed for each branch library to assist the library staff in meeting its goals. The Friends of the Library holds regular book sales to raise funds to support activities which include:

  • Co-sponsoring library programs by providing funds for refreshments and special entertainment, or by assisting with program arrangements
  • Providing decorations for holidays and special displays
  • Purchasing special equipment or materials not included in the library budget
  • Attending local community events to represent the Friends
  • Supporting the purchase of Books for Babies, which provides a free book for new babies in the community

The Friends invite you to join them! For more information, contact the branch in which you are interested.
