What do the Friends do?
Friends sponsor book sales and other fundraising events. Proceeds from these ventures 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, authors, speakers, Tween programs, After School programs, and Story Times.
Shopping carts are available for the convenience of our patrons; made possible by the Friends.
As you can see, the Friends are a valuable asset to our library. They are always there when needed.
