Friends of the Library


 Scenes from a Library:

A toddler sits on the floor in our lobby book store thumbing through the 25 cent bins for preschoolers as her mother waits patiently for a decision. 

Customers who know when weekly donations appear in the Friends’ Book Nook gather to get first pick. Bargain hunters browse through CDs and DVDs on sale.  You can’t beat the prices!

Staff members decorate the library garden with ghostly lights and skeletons for a Halloween treat for all ages.

Patrons are loaned Hot Spots to access the Internet or may complete getting a GED or researching job opportunities and more.

Landscapers cement Belgian block and install stones decorating the library entrance.

Young children gather to use the bi-lingual language computer.

Outreach programs are enjoyed all year long spanning all ages and interests.

Four hundred cars line up for a free shredding event.

Ladies take a yoga class over-looking Academy Cove on a beautiful summer day.

All these activities are supported by the Friends.  Join us in continuing technology acquisition, garden maintenance, expanding community outreach program and more.
