Why do I need to be a Library Friend?

  • The opportunity to participate beyond borrowing materials and attending programs
  • The opportunity to have a greater voice in the programs, collections and services the library provides
  • The opportunity to meet and get to know other readers and library supporters
  • The opportunity to take advantage of special member benefits, such as receipt of the Friends' newsletter and participation in the annual meeting.
