Projects Funded by the Friends Fundraising Efforts

Our fundraising help to support special library activities. All proceeds from our book sales and sales in the gift shop support the library.

Some of the projects funded recently by the Friends include:                                     

  • 2021 Youth Services Summer Reading Program
  • 2020/2021 Grab-N-Go Bags for children and Teens (A response to Covid-19 restrictions)
  • Books
  • Computers
  • Promotional Materials
  • Tables
  • Youth Services Programs
  • Staff Development Day
  • Sewing machine and Cricut for the Creation Station
  • Adult programs

The Friends also sponsor family craft programs, family STEAM programs, game programs, teen programs, seasonal programs, and programs for families that homeschool. Youth Services Department staff is very grateful to the Friends of the Library for providing the funding that makes these programs a success. Without their support, library programs would not be possible, and we appreciate all of the hard work that they do.
