Friends of the Library


Our Mission is to support the library and staff, by enhancing the resources and services of the library. Friends will develop fundraising activities to provide financial support to the library in promoting the use and enjoyment of the library, by the community in which we live.

 We need regular members with ideas, talents and time.
