Proceeds of these sales raise money for special programs, collections and services that enhance the Library and benefit the community. Each year the Friends contribute more than $20,000 to the Library. The money raised enables the Library to purchase equipment and materials that would not otherwise be affordable. Using donations from the Friends, the Library has been able to purchase additional copies of popular books, DVDs, Playaways and furnishings for the Children's Department. Several programs are sponsored by the Friends each year and the Friends also help cover the cost of prizes for three popular summer reading clubs every year!
