Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library meet the third Wednesday of each month from 1:00-2:00 pm in the Community Room. The Friends are a group of volunteers who share a common belief that the library is important to the intellectual and cultural growth of the community. The members of this non-profit organization work to increase public awareness of all library services and assist in bringing funds to the library for special needs. Membership forms are available at the Help Desk. For more information contact us at:
