The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to the constant support of the library and special events. Some of these programs include:
Special speaker and author visits
Summer reading events
Through fund-raisers like the book sales and membership fees, the Friends are able to support programs that otherwise would not be a part of the library experience and advocate for the library.
