Donate/Volunteer - Membership Support

Membership Information

All funds raised by the Friends derive from book sales and membership. In the past year we have expanded by selling books on Amazon. Now, we are focused on recruiting membership support.

We are grateful to our 114 members who generously funded our efforts with $5,600 in contributions in 2014. Yet, we know there are many more people who support our library and its programs. We are reaching out to the community to spread the word and seek support.

If you are interested in becoming a member, click here to print out the membership form or click the Donate button to the left. Please partner with us. Itís a solid win-win for everyone.
