Special Message during Pandemic
The Friends is a nonprofit membership organization that normally raises over $150,000 each year to support Library collections, programs and services. Other than annual membership fees and donations, this money is raised entirely by volunteers through the processing and sale of books generously donated by our community.
Because of the pandemic, we have lost the ability to raise money in our Book Store and through our Big Book Sales at a time when the Library – and the community it serves – needs our support more than ever.
You can help by buying great books and other items at bargain prices from the Friends Online Book Store and making a donation of any size to the Friends. And if you are not a Friends member, please join or renew your membership today.

Annual Membership Meeting
Our annual meeting (held via Zoom this year) included a presentation of Friends activities and results for the year. Members voted on the annual board slate and proposed change to our Bylaws. Library Director Susan Brown shared an update on the Library’s re-opening status and plans.
