Upcoming Library Events

Library Giving Day

Next Friends Meeting May 18th 6:30pm

Friends are advocates for literacy and reading, and promote the library as a vital informational, cultural, and educational asset to our community. The Friends provide supplemental funding to the library and have been actively continuing this support throughout COVID-19. They have funded several new projects over the last couple years such as the Hillcrest Park Storywalk, the construction of 4 Little Free libraries, and Wee Readers bilingual preschool book kits. Proceeds from membership dues, donations and fundraisers help pay for special library programs and services not funded by the regular library budget.
