Part of Friends mission is to help make books available to everyone in our community. It’s so important that we have access to multiple sources of information and points of view, especially today. Books educate us, inform us, and bring us enjoyment. By supporting Friends, you also help support many valuable library programs such as the 6 x 6 literacy program and the incarcerated services program. Friends is dedicated to promoting the Library and its valuable programs and services for all ages and interests in our community.
