Join Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit advocacy organization

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. The Friends currently have about 100 members."

Fund raising activities

-A "Book in a Basket" fund raiser is held each spring. Members adopt a book that is supplied by the Friends group, they purchase 7 - 9 new items that reflect the title of the book and return all of the items in a basket with the book. The bidders use their library card to bid and each basket begins at the cost of the book.

- Membership is a fund raiser. Each family's membership is $15, a single is $10.  The membership drive is held in February of each year.
