The Library Needs Friends
The Friends of the Library is always looking for more active members. The Friends is under new leadership and looking for help building out the group.
The Friends is a non-profit group of volunteers who support and fund the needs of the library’s education programming. Sitting with Santa, the Pumpkin Festival and Summer Reading all occur because of the Friends. If interested in volunteering or learning more, check out the Friends page or come to the next meeting.
