Friends of the Wickliffe Public Library
Who are the Friends of the Library?
The Friends of the Wickliffe Public Library are a dedicated group of people working together for the betterment of the library. They share ideas, finding ways to help the library by raising money through various programs and projects.
How Can I Become a Friend?
Programs will be expanding in the upcoming years and we hope to see more Friends members participating. We also hope to increase the community’s involvement in our organization, as well as their awareness.
So consider becoming a Friend and get involved by attending a meeting and becoming a part of our team. We could really use your help and welcome your ideas.
Friends of the Wickliffe Public Library meet the third Tuesday of January, March, May, July, September and November at 5:15 p.m. at the Library.
We hope to see you soon at our meeting and activities.

What do the Friends do?
Friends have sponsored book sales and other fundraising events such as Mr. iSee ice cream truck and Murder Mystery Plays. Proceeds from these ventures, plus the money we collect from your dues benefit the library. The Friends, in part or totally, sponsor most of the programming in the library, such as prizes and entertainment for Summer Reading programs, National Library Week, ice cream socials, children’s authors, and we support the Therapy Dog program, “Tales for a Dog”.
Tweens have enjoyed decorating flip flops, tie dying, cupcake wars, playing games, learning magic, and creating calming jars! Socializing, snacking, and enjoying each other’s company is what we do best!
Adults have enjoyed the Murder Mystery Plays and speakers, covering a variety of interest including candy making and a classical guitar program. The many plants around the library are kept up with funds from the Friends. And shopping carts have been added for the convenience of our patrons.
As you can see, the Friends are a valuable asset to our library. They are always there when needed.
