Friends of the Library

Friends_Fall_Sale_MonitorRV

The Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale is happening, October 22-24, in the Library's First Floor Meeting Room. 

The Friends are accepting donations of gently used books, DVDs and CDs, and would also love any sturdy paper shopping bags you might be otherwise recycling. Just bring your donation to the Library's greeter desk in the first floor lobby.

About the Friends

The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to the support of the Library.  Through an annual membership drive and several large book sales, the Friends raise money for special programs, collections and services that enhance the Library and benefit the community.  Each year the Friends contribute more than $15,000 to the Library.

Funds raised benefit several areas of the Library, including prizes for adult, teen, and children reading clubs; the purchase of licenses for feature and classic films that are shown free throughout the year; funds the book discussion groups picnic; special performances like the ScribbleMonster concert; and interactive items like the playhouse for the Children's Early Literacy play area.
