A Friends group serves as an informed citizen’s lobby that supports the library when necessary.
A Friends group supplements what cannot be provided by the normal library budget. Fundraisers can be held or friends can play a role in encouraging donations.
Friends offer their time and energy for special projects and events like working at the annual book sale or improving the appearance of the library. The Library has for some time provided outreach services to the St. Regis Nursing Home abd Laurel Terrace Senior Citizens High Rise. The Friends have extended this program by bringing books to the Highland Nursing Home.
The Friends group sponsors special programs like hosting a visit by an author or working with the librarian planning a special event.
Friends play a crucial role in promoting the services of the library.
