Join Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit advocacy organization which supports the Library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community.

  The Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars. Recent purchases include  encyclopedias, movie license and landscape maintenance.  The Friends also fund the children's programs.  The Friends currently have about 75 members and 8 corporate members.

  • Fund raising activities

    Ongoing fundraisers are recycling beverage containers and used book sales.  The drop off point for the beverage containers is located at the Corner Car Wash on Main Street.  The book sale is located in the Brown Center at the library.  Baked goods sales are held periodically during the year.
