What do the Friends Do?

  • The Friends try to create public support for expanding the library's programs and building needs.
  • We help to provide materials and services for the library that are not included in the regular budget.
  • The Friends work to promote legislation and appropriations that will benefit the library.
  • Each year we would like our membership to grow so that we can provide all these services and more in the future.
