What are the Friends?
The Friends of the Library began in 1994. In 2014, the group celebrated 20 years of service. It donates $20,000 a year to the Library which sponsors children's and adult programs, including the popular summer reading club. The group also offers a $2,000 grant to the staff of the Library. It supports and helps pass local and bond issues for the Library. It also provides service to homebound patrons. With the Friends' help, the Library is able to purchase subscriptions, equipment, furniture, and other materials as needed.
If you become a member of the Friends and volunteer your time, you will be invited to our annual luncheon for Library staff and volunteers. The group also provides other morale boosters throughout the year.
The Friends of the Library Shop is entirely owned, staffed, and managed by members of the organization. It is a great place to buy unique gifts, books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape, puzzles, and more! The hours for the Friends' Shop are:
|Monday||1pm to 7pm|
|Tuesday||10am to 5:30pm|
|Wednesday||10:30am to 6:30pm|
|Thursday||10am to 4pm|
|Friday||10:30am to 4:30pm|
