Who are the Friends?

The Friends are people just like you who want to support the library financially and/or by volunteering. We raise funds for the library's programs, special equipment and services. We volunteer at the book sales and bookstore. We award an annual scholarship to a high school senior who works or volunteers for the library. The Friends host the Art Wall in the main lobby area. Images from this month's artist can be seen above.

The Friends Mission: A membership organization of dedicated volunteers who serve as library advocates, and who plan and implement fundraising efforts to support library programs, collections and special projects.
