Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library was organized by individuals who believe in the importance of books, reading, and libraries for people of all ages. They are interested in taking an active part in the improvement of the library and its resources. Members believe that any community is a better place in which to live if it supports its library.

What Do the Friends Do?

Friends organizations help a public library to maintain and improve its services by supplementing library budgets with private funds and by providing volunteer work. The Friends primary revenue resources are membership fees and proceeds from book sales or other projects.  Examples of our donations include:

Funding equipment and materials beyond the basics provided for in the regular budget. The most recent equipment purchase was the cotton candy machine for Special Programs.

Volunteering to assist the library staff with various projects and use special talents and interests to benefit the library. 

Funding incentives for the summer reading programs, as well as other special programs held throughout the year.


Why Should You Be A Friend?

As members, we are interested in promoting the facilities and services of the library, obtaining finances and programs of community interest and focusing public attention on the services, resources, and needs of the library. You will support the activities and functions of the library through the Friends fund-raising activities while enjoying the association of others who share an interest in books, libraries, and people. You may be as active as you choose. And remember, your membership is tax deductible. Simply fill out the application located at the check-out desk in the library or print this form and return it with your membership fee.
