Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit advocacy organization which supports the library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community.

The Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars.


The Friends host monthly book sales in the library basement on the first consecutive Friday and Saturday of the month.  Donations are accepted at the library during open hours.  Please see donation requirements by clicking here.
