What do the Friends do?

The Friends are a group of people who help our library by volunteering, fundraising, and trying to make a difference. We use the money that we raise to purchase extra things for the library that are not included in the library's budget.  

Book Sales

We hold 3 book sale fundraising events per year: Spring Book Sale, Fall Book Sale, Holiday Book Sale. See our Calendar for dates and times.
