About the Friends of the Library

History

The Friends group started in 1992 when a dedicated group of library patrons decided to start an organization to support and enhance the library and its services.

Book Store

The Friends’ Book Store is open every day during regular library hours. It is located in the Internet Café area. Prices are 10 cents, 25 cents, and 50 cents for Children’s, Paperback, and Hardcover, respectively, unless otherwise marked. Please consider donating books and DVDs you are no longer using. The Friends cannot accept donations of Encyclopedias or VHS tapes.

Membership

Please consider becoming a member of our Friends organization. There are different levels of membership starting at $5 per year. Contact the library for more information.
