How You Will Make a Difference 

The Friends of the Library support, advocate, and raise funds for our library through ongoing book sales of gently used books. The proceeds from Friends fund-raising activities, are shared with the branch for purchasing various items not covered by city funding such as additional programming, collection development, and holiday decorations. This is an excellent opportunity for those looking to expand their leadership skills and make a high-level impact on their local community.
