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.

  • Children, Teen, and Adult programs
  • Battle of the Books and Teen Art Show
  • Children's Literacy Education Computers
  • Display Cases
  • Bike Racks
