Become a "Friend"

What does it mean to be a “friend” of the Library?  The friends seek to develop a core of volunteers to energize community support, raise funds through public and private sources, and serve as ambassadors of the library to the community at large.

The major part of our fundraising is through the annual book sale.

Interested in becoming a friend, or finding out more?  Forms are available at the library.
