  • to stimulate the use of the library’s resources and services by purchasing computers, children’s books, and furniture as part of the library’s main resources and services;to receive and encourage gifts, endowments and bequests to the library;
  • to support and cooperate with the library in developing library services and facilities for the community;to lend legislative support where needed; and
  • to support the freedom to read as expressed in the American Library Association Bill of Rights.

Our local chapter serves in many capacities as a volunteer auxiliary;

  • to assist the librarians and the staff in planning year round special events and activities for the library such as luncheons, book sales, fashion show, etc.;
  • by planning educational activities and literary events of interest to our local youth of school age such as police “dare” programs, spelling bees, storytelling, musical talent shows, etc.; and
  • to consistently work toward an increasing interest and usage of our library facilities and services.

Your interest and support, whether in person or as a financial supporter, is needed and most appreciated by the friendly staff of the library and friends of the library.
