Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends:  They are a group of dedicated volunteers who recognize the vital importance of libraries in our community. Their efforts support the Library and its programs – both financially and with time spent volunteering.

2017 Annual Meeting — Escape from the Stacks 
Saturday, April 22, 6:30pm-8pm — A great time was had by all!
A brief business meeting started the evening with the receiving of reports, authorizing the Friends support for the Library’s Summer Reading Program and Local History Digital Project, and election of officers.  A dedicated crew of sleuths adjourned to the 1931 Room and solved the Spyder Heist and enjoyed treats as well.  They have been sworn to secrecy as to how they met this challenge so well, but the library is glad to know that we can call on them again in the future!

The Friends since 2001 have contributed over $64,000 to the library to make dreams for our patrons come true.  Click here for a listing of the many fine projects sponsored by the Friends.
