The Friends strive to aid and promote the library through fundraising efforts, the largest of which are their book sales. The sales help fund a majority of the library programs as well as odds and ends the library’s budget doesn’t cover. In recent years, the Friends of the Library have provided the following for the library and its patrons. • Furniture • Shelving • Snow Blower • Programming Supplies • Speaker/Performer Fees • BookPage Subscription • High-speed Copier • Outdoor Book Drop

Thank you to all who visited our Book Sale in April.

The next book sale will be August 20th – 23rd.
