Friends of the Library

Money raised from membership dues and our annual used book sale underwrites the cost of programs, equipment and countless other services and activities. Check out some of the great things the Friends funded last year and see how many people benefited:

  • Museum passes to 28 museums (1,500 uses)

  • 9 Friends Coffeehouse Music Series (671 attendees)
  • 140 ebooks and downloadable audiobooks (2,000 checkouts)
  • 50 digital magazine subscriptions (1,602 checkouts)

Thanks to the generous support of our members, the Friends offer many other programs and events, such as Author Talks, Cultural Bus Tours, Books to Your Door home delivery service, The Doorway newsletter, the community event Night of 1000 Stars, the Coffeehouse Music Series, Great Decisions discussion groups and much more.
