Friends of the Library


Become a Friend


The Friends are dedicated to focusing public attention on library services, facilities and needs; helping promote the use and enjoyment of the library; and developing supplemental funding for the library. The Friends board meets every first Monday of the month at 2 pm in the library. Guests are always welcome to join us.


Every day, you can find dozens of gently used books – some right from the library shelves – for sale at the Friends’ ongoing book sale, located just inside the main entrance.
