Board meetings occur on the third Thursday of each month (except August) beginning at 10:00am. Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, meetings are held via Zoom and include just the board. 


What We Do:

We work closely with your beloved Librarians & Staff - providing over $50,000 annually to ensure they can implement the enriching programs and activities they work so hard to create for our entire community to enjoy.

Sometimes we fully fund the cost of a program/event and other times we provide the supplies, materials, music and/or snacks, but it’s the Friends’ financial support that makes these activities possible. In addition, we fund copiers, printers, furnishings, & devices available on loan or for use within our walls.

Our Programs:

Between the library staff and the support from our friends, we have been able to re-imagine many of our previous programs virtually during COVID-19.
