The Friends support the library by providing programs, materials, and services that are not part of the regular library budget. We also assist the library staff with ongoing collection development and special projects. Friends serve as a link between the library staff and the public. The Friends volunteer at library events.Our meetings are at the library on the first Monday of the month at 5 p.m. New Friends are always welcome!
Come and see what we are up to this month!
